Sugarbush Festival of Lights & Memory Tree

The Sugarbush Festival of Lights is a Mad River Valley holiday tradition!  Businesses and residents in the Mad River Valley towns of Warren, Waitsfield, Fayston, and Moretown LIGHT UP THE VALLEY with beautiful decor.  Some of the light displays are quite elaborate, some are traditional, some are eccentric, and all are a twinkle of cheer during this darker time of the year.   A Valley signature are the lit stars of all sizes that dot the landscape.  We estimate more than 500 stars light up the Valley from December through the winter.   It’s quite a spectacular sight for visitors, among the moonlit sky and glistening snow.  And, a spectacular sight for us locals, too, who are reminded of the strong sense of community and camaraderie we have here in our Mad River Valley.
