Newfields: Winterlights 2018


If you enjoy Christmas lights and Christmas lights dancing to music, then the Indianapolis Museum of Art has a treat for you! For the second year in a row, Newfields, a 152 acre campus for the IMA, is hosting an enormous multicolored light and music display. How big is enormous? A million and a half lights make an appearance at this event. Now, that’s a lot of lights! Winterlights at Newfields is just over an hour from Lafayette, IN, and it is a great special event to make tradition for your family.


Things to do at Newfields: Winterlights 2018

Aside from enjoying the outdoor light display in the garden (which kids love!), there are other things to peruse. “Warm drinks, handmade s’mores, and unique photo ops” are all part of the fun. This year, something new to visit is the Wintermarket at the Deer Zink Events Pavillion. According to the Indy Star, “[It] sells food and gifts from local makers that include Goose the Market, Gallery Pastry Shop and Sun King Brewing Co.”

During the month of December, Santa comes on Tuesdays and carolers sing on Wednesdays.

On December 6th, 2018, the Holiday Hullabaloo will offer extra holiday shopping fun. IMA members get a special discount at all of these events, including $10 off admission on December 16th & 17th.

*Since this is an outdoor event, be sure to dress as the weather requires!*

On the Newfields campus is the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which is always a cool place to check out. Come early in the day to visit the IMA and its current galleries. Also on the Newfields campus is the Lilly House, which is rich in history!


Deck the Halls at the Lilly House

Here is some information about Deck the Halls at the Lilly House according to the Newfields website:

“In the evenings, the historic Lilly House mansion will remain the backdrop for the Landscape of Light, where over 300,000 lights dance to Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. After hearing the captivating music, guests are welcomed inside the front door of the Lilly House to discover stunning holiday décor and floral displays.” Beautifully designed and kept, the Lilly House will inspire your holiday decorating for next year!
