101 Things To Do In Memphis #40: Orion Starry Nights at Shelby Farms Park

by Melissa Thompson

New Lights, More Nights! Make sure to visit Orion Starry Nights at Shelby Farms Park, opening November 18th thru December 27th!

Starry Nights is the biggest holiday light show and festival in the region, and it also powers the Park! It is a Mid-South tradition. Thousands of LEDs illuminate the night sky and this year, new lights and more nights means more holiday fun! Starry Nights is more than a show--it's an experience.

Experience Starry Nights in a new light every night! Ride in style on an enchanted, horse-drawn carriage or hayride! Decorating your car or wearing your favorite holiday sweater offers you fun ways to earn a $5 discount on tickets on special theme nights! Grab a cup of hot chocolate while you visit Santa, do some holiday shopping with local artisans, visit the Starry Petting Zoo, and even ride a camel in Mistletoe Village. Afterward, gather around a cozy campfire and roast s'mores while you listen to carols in the village on the Starry Stage. Discounts are only valid on specific dates.

All proceeds from Orion Starry Nights benefit Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline.

Purchase tickets ahead of time! You can skip the line at the main entrance (Walnut Grove) and enter through the VIP gate on Mullins Station Road. Buy Tickets Here!
