It's very merry. It's really bright. Winterlights returns for a third year, making it an official holiday tradition in Central Indiana. Create even more memories this season with friends and family as you stroll through our spectacular Winter Wonderland, sip apple cider or hot chocolate (spiked options are available for adults) and make s’mores over a fire pit.

Watch lights dance to music on the Lilly House lawn and stop to take photos at the Snowflake Bridge, Frosted Forest and other illuminated displays throughout the grounds. Special glasses will be available that transform every one of the 1.5 million lights into a shimmering snowflake.

Guests can also revisit another beloved Newfields tradition, Deck the Halls at the Lilly House, during Winterlights. Each room in the elegant, historic mansion will feature decorative surprises, including beautiful holiday floral arrangements.

Tickets will go sale on October 8 at 11 a.m. for this year’s Winterlights, Nov. 23, 2019, to Jan. 5, 2020.

  November 23, 2019–January 5, 2020
  Every day, 5 p.m.–9 p.m.


As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, attention has turned toward increasing the emphasis on combining art with nature. The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships. Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
