Koziar's Christmas Village
Koziar's Christmas Village (November 6, 2021 - January 1, 2022) provides the greatest Christmas display in the U.S., located just outside Lehigh Valley, Pa. Driving through the darkened countryside and coming over that last hill on the unlit country road is like driving into a fairyland. Suddenly, you find yourself in a dazzling valley set aglow with more Christmas lights than you have ever seen before. Adding to the magnificent beauty is the spectacular reflection of those thousands and thousands of lights in the lake situated directly in front of the main house.
This family-owned Christmas attraction dates back to 1948 when William M. Koziar began decorating his home and dairy farm for the pleasure that he, his wife, and four children derived from it. It has continued to grow for more than 60 years and has become one of the most famous Christmas attractions in the USA. It has received many awards in its long history including “Best Outdoor Display in the World” and the “Award of Excellence as one of the Top Ten Travel Attractions in Pennsylvania.”
Koziar's is open on all major holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. Parking is free. There are no guided tours, you walk the grounds at your own pace on well lit and clearly marked, paved pathways with "street signs" and arrows to help you discover all the special sights of Christmas Village. Since there are both indoor and outdoor displays, visitors should expect to spend 90 minutes to two-hours viewing the displays and exhibits, visiting with Santa, enjoying refreshments, and shopping the ornament shops.
Christmas Village offers hot dogs, burgers, pizza, nachos, pretzels, popcorn, hot chocolate, and more.
