0 Comment

After a five-year hiatus, the Mesa Temple Christmas Lights return this year to the renovated temple grounds, 101 S. LeSueur, for 37 spectacular nights – from Nov. 25 through Dec. 31. The lights are on nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The event – previously called one of the “must-see holiday lighting extravaganzas in the United States” – has drawn over a million visitors annually from across Arizona and far beyond to partake of the Christmas spirit on these temple grounds.

It is one of the largest known volunteer-driven Christmas lighting displays in the country, has been a beloved community tradition in the area since 1979.

Included in this free event are hundreds of thousands of lights, favorite Biblical displays, larger-than-life lighted wisemen and their camels and a near life-size Italian Fontanini nativity figurines and stable at the northwest corner of the temple with a newly designed star, twinkling with thousands of white lights.

Across the street on the west side, at 455 E. Main St., the Mesa Temple Visitors Center hosts a display of more than 100 international nativities from across the world. Admission is free and open each evening 5-10 p.m.


November 25 @ 5:00 pm MST
December 31 @ 10:00 pm MST
