Winterfest & the Tunnel of Lights at the Connecticut Trolley Museum
November 26, 2021 - December 30, 2021
Winterfest and the “Tunnel of Lights” is celebrating this year as a family holiday tradition. Halls are decked both inside and outside with over 15,000 lights. Outside, closed trolley cars transport jolly guests down a tunnel of lights as they sing traditional Christmas Carols with their trolley car operators. For an open air view of the “Tunnel of Lights,” one open sleigh car is lit up entirely with holiday lights. Be sure to dress warm and bring blankets. Inside, the Visitor Center is a Winter Wonderland with multiple model train layouts and lights galore.
Additionally the Museum will be open from November 26 through December 30, 2021.
Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights is held rain or shine. During inclement weather, open cars are not operated and are substituded with closed cars.
The Museum will be following the State of Connecticut Covid-19 guidelines including masks while visiting. All tickets must be made before visiting the Museum at www.ct-trolley.org
