Mark Your Calendars for Another Sweet Year at Hersheypark

While there is still plenty of time to visit Hersheypark during Christmas Candylane this year, 2020 will be here before we know it. We are excited to share our 2020 Hersheypark operating calendar so guests can plan their visits now in anticipation of a momentous year in The Sweetest Place On Earth.

In 2020, Hersheypark will be open more than 175 days over the course of 9 months and four distinct seasons. Kicking off the 2020 operating season is Springtime In The Park, a three-weekend event that will open on April 4. The summer fun at Hersheypark will begin on May 1 and continue on weekends through May 17. The Park will move to daily operations from May 21 through September 7 with The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park opening from May 23 through September 7. Hours for the water park will be released closer to opening.

Following Labor Day, Hersheypark will be open weekends in September for guests to soak up the last of the summer fun. But, don't worry, Hersheypark will also be open for two more seasonal events to close out 2020. Hersheypark In The Dark Halloween attraction will run for three fall weekends from October 16 through November 1. Then, the Park will transform into a winter wonderland for Christmas Candylane on select days from November 13 through January 3, 2021.
