York County Parks is pleased to present the 37th edition of Christmas Magic! The event runs November 27 – December 31, closed December 24 & 25. Stroll through our festive half-mile, ADA accessible, woodland trail filled with nearly a million Christmas lights and holiday scenes. In 2020, enjoy a completely outdoor experience. On the first two nights, November 27 & 28, you can bring an unwrapped gift donation for Toys for Tots!
Admission to Christmas Magic is by timed tickets only. Reservations are required; no walk-ins will be permitted. Timed admission limits the number of people attending Christmas Magic at one time, providing a better visiting experience and less waiting in traffic and lines. All sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable unless the York County Parks closes the event due to weather. No other refund requests will be honored. Visit our FAQs page for more information.
Guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be followed. Attendees are required to wear a mask on the trail and practice social distancing. Those without a mask will be denied entry except for children 2 and under and those who cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition. In an attempt to reduce opportunities for crowding, we are limiting attendance and will not be offering live entertainment, Santa, the Friends Food Court, or Train Displays.
Weather-Related Cancellations: Our lights and displays can be temperamental in the presence of snow, rain, ice, and fog. They may require time to dry out even after inclement weather ends. If we cancel due to weather, you will receive a refund to your credit card on the following business day. To find out if we’re cancelled for the evening due to inclement weather, call the Christmas Magic Hotline at (717) 840-7440, press 4, then 2, or visit us on Facebook or Twitter for up-to-date trail conditions and closures.
