Event Description

Umpqua Festival of Lights. World’s Largest Nutcracker, Over 500,000 Lights, 3D Displays/Glasses, Over 90 Animated Displays, Santa Claus, Free Candy Canes, Wagon Rides, Holiday Village, Holiday Music, Chuck Wagon Dinner, Amazing light displays and Nutcracker Ballet kick off highly anticipated season.

The annual season of the Umpqua Valley Festival of Lights is now underway at Riverforks Park near Roseburg, Oregon. The Festival of Lights has become an annual tradition in Douglas County, drawing nearly 30,000 visitors in 2014 and generating hundreds of thousands of dollars for Rotary Club scholarships since beginning in 1993.

The Umpqua Festival of Lights opens at Riverforks Park at 5:30 every night from now to January 1.

While visitors once again enjoy 90 light displays containing nearly 500,000 and all the traditional attractions that have made the Festival famous, some new additions will make the experience even more unforgettable.

Many of the new features are connected to the World’s Largest Nutcracker, but one very important addition can be found among the light displays. Organizers of the Festival have added a UCC Strong display. The sign was built in the shape of the state of Oregon, with a red heart over Roseburg and the words “UCC Strong”. Festival Committee Chair Kerwin Doughton said, “The display is meant to pay respects to those who were lost, to encourage the injured, and honor the strength and resolve of our amazing community.”

A few improvements have been made to the World’s Largest Nutcracker for 2015. First, the 41-foot statue has been named Herr Woody Winterguard. Second, Herr Woody now has moving arms. Finally, the Nutcracker has been fitted with a video camera. The live video stream will be available during normal operating hours. Soon, Herr Woody Winterguard is expected to officially be recognized as the largest in the world by Guinness World Records.

Umpqua Festival of Lights. The Holiday Village will be open Thursday through Sunday nights during the Festival. With Santa Claus, a model train set, cookies, candies, warm cider and souvenirs for sale, the Holiday Village is a must see. Wagon rides are back Saturday and Sunday nights and the famous Chuck Wagon Dinner.

Several special nights are scheduled throughout the Festival of Lights, allowing thousands of people to see the attractions for free through special offers. Find the Umpqua Festival of Lights on Facebook.
