Holidays in

During the season of joy, welcome new memories and traditions. With lights adorning our Main Streets, holiday markets, and seasonal performances, the beauty and spirit of this time of year surrounds you in DuPage. 

Some of the best holiday moments are the simplest — including the unpretentious joy of a winter stroll, adorned with twinkling lights and the sights and sounds of magical holiday hustle and bustle. DuPage downtowns offer the quintessential warmth and charm of small-town Midwest, complete with light displays, welcoming shop owners and restaurants ready to help you grab something to go.

Of course, our annual tradition demands a stop at The Morton Arboretum, which offers a light spectacle unlike any other!  Be sure to book your advanced tickets for Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum, returning to a walking experience this year. Not to be outdone is Holiday Magic at Brookfield Zoo — celebrating its 39th year and boasting Chicagoland’s largest light festival.

Cheers and happy holidays!
