2018 Peacock Lane Holiday Lights Displays


Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy Your Visit to Peacock Lane


Portland, OR, November 15, 2018:


The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s Historic Peacock Lane are once again planning their legendary light displays. One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes for decades.

As always, Peacock Lane does not charge an admission fee to view the lights, and asks that groups and individuals help to keep the event commercial-free by not passing flyers or soliciting visitors for sales or donations.


2018 Schedule


Lights on December 15th-31st from 6 to 11 PM

PEDESTRIANS ONLY NIGHTS are December 15th, 16th, and 17th (Saturday, Sunday and Monday)


In the event of additional, unplanned closures due to large crowds, updates will be posted to Twitter, FaceBook, and pages. Those who must see the lights from a car are encouraged to check online before visiting.


Free Cocoa and Cider


The Cocoa Booth is open December 15th-24th, 6 PM until sold out, generally after 8pm.

Cocoa and cider are provided free of charge, but donations of cash and canned goods are accepted at the cocoa booth when open. This year a portion of cocoa booth proceeds will be donated locally to the Village Free School .
