100 Days Until Christmas 2021

Spend the Holidays at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane

It's hard to believe it but the countdown to Christmas is officially on with 100 days to go! This means there are less than two months until Hersheypark Christmas Candylane opens to the public. Christmas Candylane begins Nov. 12, 2021 and runs select dates through Jan. 2, 2022. See our full operating calendar and hours here.

A Preview of the Merriest Event of the Year

Hersheypark Christmas Candylane holiday attraction will open to the public on select dates from Nov. 12, 2021, through Jan. 2, 2021 with daily operations starting December 3 (closed Christmas Day); hours vary by day with event tickets available closer to the season. 

2021 marks 25 years of Santa’s reindeer making a special stop at Hersheypark, as Christmas Candylane is the only place in the Northeast where guests can get an up-close look at all nine live reindeer, including Rudolph.

Christmas Candylane also features more than 5 million twinkling lights, including the dazzling NOEL light show with more than 250,000 dancing lights synchronized to Christmas music; a unique blend of thrilling coasters like Candymonium and family-friendly rides (weather permitting); an experience with Santa; TREEVILLE trail, a strolling holiday adventure experience in The Boardwalk region with more than a dozen uniquely decorated trees sharing stories of The Sweetest Place On Earth; signature hot chocolate and other sweet treats. A new Breakfast with Santa experience will also be offered on December weekends at The Chocolatier Restaurant Bar + Patio with more details to come.

Hershey Sweet Lights attraction, a drive-through holiday spectacular with nearly 600 illuminated displays, will also be open, with hours and tickets available in late September. 

Special holiday packages will be available to book at The Official Resorts of Hersheypark later this month so guests can enjoy all the holiday season has to offer in The Sweetest Place On Earth. Visit our website for rates and additional information.
