State Fair Park 1st Annual Drive Thru Holiday Light Fest

Location: Yakima

1301 S Fair Ave, Yakima, WA 98901

State Fair Park will look extra special this holiday season. We are getting in the holiday spirit by transforming the fairgrounds into a drive-thru Holiday Light Fest, presented by Yakima Federal Savings & Loan. This will be Yakima’s newest holiday experience and must-see holiday attraction to enjoy this year.

This drive-thru experience will feature 12 festive and fun holiday-themed scenes, nearly 20 miles of lights illuminating buildings and trees. Some of the themed scenes include Candyland with a festive gingerbread house, the North Pole with two of Santa’s reindeer – Dasher and Comet, a mailbox for letters to Santa, and the big man himself! The social-distanced festival is slated to begin on November 28th and run through Sunday, December 6th.

To enter the event, turn North on 18th Street from Nob Hill Blvd and enter at Gate 15 which is located on Pacific Ave (by the Yakima County Baseball Stadium). Gates will open at 4:30 pm with the drive-thru hours from 5 pm – 9 pm each night. Admission will be $10 per vehicle and $20 for limos and buses. Group discount tickets are available, see our website for details. A drive-up concession area will be available. Food items will include traditional concession items as well as special holiday offerings like hot chocolate and spiced cider. Credit or debit cards are preferred, but cash will be accepted as well.

This nine-day event will have two community give back opportunities. On Monday, November 30th we have partnered with the Yakima Salvation Army and guests that bring a new unwrapped toy (suggested value $10) will be provided free admission that evening sponsored by Yakima Federal. On Tuesday, December 1st, $3.00 of each paid admission will be donated to the Yakima Humane Society and Wags to Riches, to support rescued animal needs and adoptions. 

The State Fair Park - Fairgrounds prioritizes the safety of its guests and staff. We appreciate your cooperation with the mandatory law of wearing a mask and remaining in your vehicle while at the event. All staff will practice safety guidelines set by the Yakima County Health District. Staff will wear masks and gloves, sanitize surfaces frequently, and properly package food and beverages.
