York County Parks is pleased to present the 37th edition of Christmas Magic!

Purchase your timed-entry tickets online to come stroll through our festive half-mile, ADA accessible, woodland trail filled with nearly a million Christmas lights and holiday scenes. Tickets go on sale in mid-November.

In 2020, enjoy a completely outdoor experience. View the lights and enjoy some Bricker's eats. Stop and take a photo inside our giant Christmas ball or in front of our brand new Woodland Santa mural painted by a local artist. On the first two nights, November 27 & 28, you can bring an unwrapped gift donation for Toys for Tots!

Christmas Magic runs every day from November 27 to December 31 except December 24 and 25.  It is open Monday through Thursday 6-9 p.m. and Friday through Sunday 5-9 p.m. Timed entry tickets must be purchased in advance. No walk-ins will be permitted.

COVID-19 Precautions: Guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be followed. Attendees are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing. In an attempt to reduce opportunities for crowding, we are limiting attendance and will not be offering live entertainment, Santa, the Friends Food Court, or Train Displays.

Weather Cancellations: Our lights and displays can be temperamental in the presence of snow, rain, ice, and fog. They may require time to dry out even after inclement weather ends. If we cancel due to weather, you will receive a refund to your credit card on the following business day. 

To find out if we’re cancelled for the evening due to inclement weather, call the Christmas Magic Hotline at 717-840-7440, press 4, then 2, or visit us on Facebook or Twitter @yorkcountyparks for up-to-date trail conditions and closures.
