Starry Nights is the largest holiday light show and festival in the Mid-South.  It's also the longest running celebration at Shelby Farms Park. The magic of the holidays is brought to life through the drive-through display of twinkling holiday light displays, cozy campfires and visits with Santa.  Each year, over 100,000 visitors cruise through the lights of Starry Nights making it an annual tradition for families.  Now in its 9th consecutive year, Starry Nights is the Conservancy’s largest fundraiser.  Since 2009, Starry Nights has been enjoyed by more than 900,000 visitors!
