Magical Forest At Opportunity Village

Recurring event see all

November 29 @ 8:00 am January 4 @ 5:00 pm

Come enjoy this wonderful Christmas wonderland that is filled with endless entertainment and cheer ensuring you celebrate the holiday season in style. Immerse yourself in the festive fun by strolling the grounds and watching the dazzling light displays.

Celebrate the holidays with a cherished Southern Nevada tradition – the Magical Forest at Opportunity Village! The Magical Forest is a winter wonderland filled with millions of sparkling lights, nightly entertainment, delicious food and endless holiday cheer.

What began as a modest holiday event to thank donors and in-kind contributors for helping build Opportunity Village’s West Oakey Campus has blossomed into the marquee holiday event in all of Las Vegas. 2019 marks the 29th season of Opportunity Village’s largest fundraiser.

In 2018, Opportunity Village added over 1 million new lights to the Magical Forest and featured a synchronized music show with dancing lights that could be seen from any vantage point of the park. The Illumination Experience lighting spectacular will return in 2019 and run every 30 minutes from the time the Forest opens until it closes.

Added bonus: Buddy The Elf and crew will be a part of Opportunity Village’s Magical Forest festivities this holiday season!

Elf The Musical, inspired by the hit 2003 comedy film featuring Will Ferrell, will be directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Tiger Martina and included in each Magical Forest General Admission or Passport ticket purchase.

Elf The Musical will play on select nights at the Magical Forest from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and feature over 20 professional cast members. The Magical Forest will offer two performances each Saturday in December – with the exception of December 28 – at no additional cost to guests. Performances on those days will take place at 5:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Space is limited for Elf The Musical performances. Guaranteed seating can be reserved for an additional $2.

The Magical Forest will be closed on Christmas Day. The 2.5-acre park will be open for a separately ticketed event on New Year’s Eve.
