New this year—follow the path through a winter wonderland with over 400 twinkling trees, sourced from northern Maine by the Kelco Tree Farm. Look out for a themed scavenger hunt and special events.
Prepare to be amazed by the brand-new Aurora Borealis experience, projected on the ceiling of our cool geodesic dome. Come see L.L.Bean’s version of the Northern Lights, right in Discovery Park.
Discover an idyllic model train village – look out for the one extra-special train headed for the North Pole. Created just for us by the Boothbay Railway Village. Located in the Kids’ Department in the Flagship Store.
The arrival of Santa wouldn’t be complete without his reindeer! Stop by and see real ones from Maine. We asked premier builder (and Freeport native) John Libby to create a New England-style post-and-beam barn just for the occasion.
Make sure the kids bring their wish lists to share with the jolly old man—he’ll be waiting in the Reindeer Barn. Free! Snap a photo to share with family & friends.
Take a break from shopping, see the light displays and explore the village at a slower pace. Begins at 95 Main Street in front of our Flagship Store.
Join us as we light our new Discovery Forest, featuring hundreds of twinkling trees. Kick off your night with a cup of hot chocolate, then sing along to your favorite holiday carols in a truly enchanting setting.
The whole town gets into the holiday spirit! The fun kicks off with The Parade of Lights, then continues with a Sparkle Express Adventure aboard the Amtrak Downeaster, a talking Christmas tree, the Jingle Bell Fun Run & more. Details
Start the fun early with our family-friendly “KidNight” event! We’ll have crafts, live entertainment, the Bootmobile and a free concert with Rick Charette & the Bubblegum Band, followed by fireworks.
