About Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland in Sevierville

Unlike the other light displays found throughout the area during the Smoky Mountain Winterfest, Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland features dozens of visual displays that are synced to music that you can listen to in your car.

According to organizers for the winter Smoky Mountain event, there are over 1,600 individual and unique channels that are programmed to work together to produce the stunning show, all in hopes of inspiring the holiday spirit for all who visit.

If you have never seen this orchestra of lights, here is a video of what to expect at Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland.

  • $25 per car or family van
