Happening Now: Christmas at the Falls 2021

Christmas at the Falls 2021

Twinkle lights. Nature. A Gadsden holiday tradition. We’re describing what you will find at Christmas at the Falls 2021 now through January 1st!

About Christmas at the Falls

This local favorite at Noccalula Falls Park and Campgrounds is back! Stroll along the park’s paved walking trails while being dazzled by thousands of twinkle lights.

Then it’s all aboard to enjoy the views and holiday displays as you ride the park’s train through the wooded winter wonderland.

Plus, visitors before December 23rd can make plans to see Old Saint Nick. Entry time begins at 4 p.m. nightly. The park is closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but re-opens for festive fun Sunday, December 26th.

Once you arrive at Christmas in the Falls 2021 at your reserved time, you are welcome to stay and experience the holiday spirit, the scenery and more until the park’s closing time at 9 p.m.

More about visiting

Tickets must be purchased online in advance only. Depending on the night of your visit, tickets range from $8 to $10.

Also, new this year! Skip the line for the train ride with the Express Train Pass. Guests can now opt to purchase this pass online when they buy their entry tickets.

One $10 pass is good for two people. Children aged 3 and younger are free with adult ticket holders.

Since this nightly event depends on good weather, connect with Noccalula Falls on social media for weather updates and other information. Find them here on Facebook and Instagram. You can also call the park at 256-549-4663 to double check.

If it happens to rain the day you were all set to go, worry not! Tickets can be transferred to another available night. However, it’s worth noting tickets are non-refundable.

Remember to bring your wallet with some cash. Local food vendors will be on-site throughout the evenings during Christmas at the Falls 2021.


If you happen to be one of our pet-owning Summer Waters residents, save the date for the pet-friendly “Paws at the Falls” event on Tuesday, December 28th. For one night only, your favorite roommate can come along too!
