2019 Special Nights

Oshkosh Celebration of Lights


Each year, the Oshkosh Celebration of Lights organizes event nights to help shine our beautiful holiday lights toward a special dedication or tribute. Is there a cause you are passionate about that you would like to shine some Oshkosh area holiday lights on? We welcome special night dedication additions to our light show, to help ignite the awareness and involvement the lights generate.
