2021 Christmas Light Displays in McHenry County

One of the great joys of this time of year is hopping in the car and driving around to see the Christmas light displays and decorations. Whether it’s just you and your family, or you want to share the show with out-of-town guests, we’ve pulled together a list, broken out by the city or village, to help you get started.

This is, however, a loosely defined holiday display list. These may range from smaller, simpler, home light displays, to complex displays with light shows synchronized to music. They may be single homes, or whole neighborhoods, as well as commercial or public displays. They may be just lights, or they may be entire scenes and outdoor displays. Some may also be drive-by, while others encourage walking through.

And of course, we also can’t make any guarantees, especially after some of the high winds we had recently, so some of these may have come down early.

We encourage you to think of this list simply as a kickstart anyway. For every entry on this list, there will probably be a few to several more nearby, so drive around the neighborhood or around the block and you are bound to find a few more hidden gems.

And we welcome your assistance. If you find some great displays or are hosting one that isn’t on our list, please let us know so that we can add it! Likewise, if you discover that some are no longer up, we welcome that feedback so that we can adjust the list accordingly.

So, if you are looking for Christmas light displays near you, we suggest checking the list for your city or village, then expand to bordering cities or villages next. Most importantly, take your time to relax and just enjoy the moment.

My hope for McHenry Life is to create a resource and destination for the residents and businesses of McHenry County alike. A place where residents can discover new places to explore, fun events and ways to spend time, and then share those experiences with others. A place where businesses can connect with existing and potential customers, and not simply market their businesses, but share their own unique stories.
