Lights of the World

The largest lights and lantern festival in North America will be brightening Phoenix’s skies from November 21, 2019 through January 12, 2020 at the Arizona State Fair. Lights of the World is back for a third year, with completely new, and better light displays. Combining the age-old tradition of paper lanterns with cutting-edge technology, the Lights of the World lantern displays extend from 18 to 60 feet, amounting to over 10 million colorful lights, and showcase features of different cultures and civilizations around the globe. With over 65 stunning displays, Lights of the World promises an unforgettable exploration of global cultures and cuisine. Lights of the World also possesses a litany of other entertainment features: as visitors walk through, they’ll encounter a world of surprises, including friendly, life-like dinosaurs, free carnival rides, and a daily free performance showcasing acrobatics or a sea lion show. Artisans will also be on site, creating unique, handmade art to commemorate the celebration. This event will be open Thursday through Sunday and will also run on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
