Drive-Thru Fall Light Show FAQs | Sever's Festivals
🍂 2022 Fall Festival Ticket Presale Begins August 15! 🍂

frequently asked

How long can I expect driving through the light show to take?

Time spent driving through the light show completely depends on the flow of traffic. The course is 1/2 mile long with 2,500,000+ lights. We recommend vehicles go through the drive-thru and then park in the observation lot afterwards to enjoy the full program, however vehicles can also drive the course as many times as they’d like.

Do I need to make a reservation?

Tickets should be purchased online. You can select either 6-8PM or 8PM-10PM and are welcome to arrive any time within your time frame. We highly recommend securing your ticket as soon as possible.

Something has come up and I need to transfer my tickets to another day. How do I do this?

Ticket dates are fully transferrable, so if you can’t make it on the date you bought tickets for, you are welcome to visit us on a different date without making any changes to your tickets. Please note that tickets are only valid for this season and will not transfer to next year’s event or any other Sever’s event. Please contact to switch the date.

Can I buy tickets on-site?

Tickets are not available on site as we anticipate most evenings to sell out. Please purchase online ahead of time.

Do you offer discounts?

We do offer large group or corporate discounts. Please inquire for details by emailing us at

Can I get out of my car?

You may exit your vehicle to use the restrooms. Once in the drive-through, we ask that you stay in your car.

How early do I need to arrive?

We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to the end of your time slot, if possible, in order to fully enjoy the program.

Where are you located?

We are located at 3121 150th Street West in Shakopee. This is right off of Hwy 169 2 miles south of Hwy 169 & County Road 41. Please visit our Location & Directions page for exact directions.

Do you take credit cards? Do you take cash?

Yes, we accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover and cash at our concessions and novelty vendors. However, tickets do need to be purchased online this season.

What vehicles can fit through the drive-thru?

Any vehicle or bus smaller than 30 feet long and less than 10.5 feet tall will fit through our drive-thru. Please note, small party buses and shuttle buses are less than 30 feet long on average. Limos could have difficulty on the course, and we don’t recommend them unless the driver/company is experienced with our event.

Do you close for inclement weather?

We will make any closure announcements via our website and our social media pages immediately upon making that decision. Those ticket holders will be able to visit us at another date/time. We defer to the National Weather Service on their recommendation on if cars should be on the roads.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes! Because we are exclusively drive-thru, if you’d like to bring your dog in your vehicle, feel free!
