The time has come once again for the free Opryland Christmas Lights Ceremony – the unofficial kickoff to the Christmas season here in Nashville!
Free Opryland Christmas Lights Ceremony
Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville will flip the switch on their millions of Christmas lights on Friday, November 13, 2020. The free Opryland Christmas lighting ceremony will begin at 5:45 pm, but it will be a private ceremony this year.
I do have good news though! This year, Opryland will flip the switch on the Christmas lights EVERY NIGHT. If you’ve never been there for the magical moment in-person, this is your year to see it.
The lighting ceremony marks the beginning of their annual Country Christmas celebration that will run through January 3, 2021.

Here is the entire 2018 Opryland Christmas Lights Ceremony from start to finish:
Watch the video of the Opryland Christmas Lighting Ceremony from the Grand Re-Opening Celebration in 2010 (featuring Santa, fireworks AND The Rockettes):
A Country Christmas has been hailed as one of the “Ten Great Places to Catch up with Santa” by USA Today; “The Most Christmassy Hotel in the Nation” by the Travel Channel’s Extreme Christmas; one of the top 10 places to spend Christmas in the world by Travel + Leisure; and a “Nashville treasure” by Southern Living.
All season, I’ll be sharing our family’s first-hand experience at Gaylord Opryland’s “A Country Christmas” (one of our family’s favorite holiday traditions since moving to Nashville!).
You’ll get to see ALL that Gaylord Opryland has to offer for Christmas this year, including.
Because of social distancing, they will not be offering ICE! or a holiday show at the Opry. (In the past I’ve shared ICE ticket deals & hope to do that again next year).
