Macy's Christmas Light Show

Macy’s Center City once again welcomes visitors to enjoy its famous Christmas Light Show in 2023! 

The Christmas Light Show is a Philadelphia holiday tradition dating back half a century, housed in the historic Wanamaker Building. The free show uses more than 100,000 LED lights to project snowflakes, ballerinas and reindeer upon a four-story-high velvet curtain in the Grand Court atrium, accompanied by festive music from the world-renowned Wanamaker Grand Organ.

November 24 through December 31. No reservations are required.

Upstairs, another holiday tradition, Dickens Village, is also back for visitors in 2021. The 6,000-square-foot walk-through experience transports visitors to 1840s London with 26 heart-warming scenes from A Christmas Carol.  

For 2023, access to Dickens Village is by advance reservation only. Reservations can be made up to five days in advance & open each day at 6:30am.
