New Lights!  More Nights!
Starry Nights is the biggest holiday light show and festival in the region, and it also powers the Park! Thousands of LEDs brighten up Shelby Farms Park.  And, this year new lights and more nights mean more holiday fun!

Driving through the lights of Starry Nights is a long-standing holiday tradition for thousands of families throughout the Mid-South, and all proceeds from the event help keep Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline clean, green and safe.

All proceeds from Starry Nights benefit Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline. Each year, Shelby Farms Park Conservancy is tasked with privately raising more than $2 million (more than 75 percent of the operating budget) to keep Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline clean, green and safe. Starry Nights is just one of the many ways that we work toward this goal.
