Winter Magic is a drive-thru Christmas lights event in Kansas City. It’s put on in association with the Kansas City, Missouri, Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners. How does it work? Our visitors purchase tickets (one per car-load) in advance here on our website. On your day of arrival, you’ll cruise Oakwood Dr in Swope Park (which we’ve transformed into a modern holiday light experience). How long is it? The drive is one-mile-long and completely adorned with game-changing holiday light displays.

Some proceeds from Winter Magic benefit the KC Parks Fund – creating capital improvements to our beloved KC parks.

What will you see? While traversing the lights experience, you will see twelve themed areas. Drive through the longest animated light tunnel in the Midwest (300ft in 2021!!). See sections dedicated to the 12 Days of Christmas, a toy workshop, stained glass nativity. Gaze our spinning trees, lighted animals in the zoo area, and the KC Proud section. Then, trip out in our candy blacklight area. All new snowflakes and candy cane areas. Lots of new drive under lighted canopies and additional displays. Have you had enough? No! We’ll give you a lesson in taste when you see our beautiful lighted spheres. And lastly, you’ll party away as you cruise through Pixel Town.

A World of Winter Wonder Awaits You!
