Starting Thanksgiving Weekend: November 26th – December 19th, 2021

Tickets go on sale in Mid August, 2021.

Space is very limited. Reservations are strongly encouraged for this show. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the The Duluth Depot (North Shore Scenic Railroad) complex starting at 3pm on the dates of performances if space is available, but space is very limited and reservations are strongly recommended.

There will be a $1.00 handling fee per ticket.

Wheelchair Information: The performance of the story is accessible, however the train ride is not, due to the historic nature of the equipment. Boarding the train requires about 4 steps up to the level of the train. Limited mobility patrons should consider extra time for walking to the train from parking.

The Bentleyville Shuttle Train is still to be determined for this year. Bentleyville Tour of Lights is planning to return to a walking style instead of the drivethrough they did in 2020. More info can be found at bentleyvilleusa.org
