The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation presents Southern Lights annually in support of the Kentucky Horse Park - not only is this event a successful fundraiser benefitting the KHP, but it has become a beloved holiday tradition for families from around the Bluegrass and beyond!
From 5:30 until 10:00 pm each evening, visitors driving through a winter landscape of lighted and often animated figures are awed by the dazzling display of over a million lights.
Inside the park more fun awaits with a petting zoo, pony rides, camel rides, model trains, holiday and craft vendors, refreshments and the Mini-Train Express. The lights are on each night through December 31, and the indoor attractions will be open each night, with the exception of November 27 and December 24 through December 31.
PLEASE NOTE: Some electronic map services available on Apple and Android mobile and auto GPS devices are not providing accurate directions to the Kentucky Horse Park. We recommend that visitors use home computers to access a mapping service for directions, use the directions provided on the KHP website (available on the widget on the right-hand side under Park Info/Address or at the top under Visitor Info), use 4089 Iron Works Pike for GPS, follow the brown highway signs or call ahead to double-check their route.
Southern Lights Insider Tip: We recommend that out-of-town visitors use Interstate 75, Exit 115 (Newtown Pike) instead of Exit 120 (Iron Works Pike) to access the Southern Lights entrance at the KHP Campground to help avoid congestion and a left-hand turn across traffic into the park.
