Enchant Christmas is the ultimate holiday light experience, and it's coming to Nationals Park.
The transformation is now underway to convert Nationals Park into Enchant Christmas, an outdoor light maze and holiday market. This amazing holiday experience opens on Friday, November 22 and remains open through December 29, 2019. The attraction includes a lighted maze, skating trail, kids' zone, cinema, and Santa’s Landing.

The adventure begins in the 90,000-square-foot Christmas light maze, the largest in the world. Visitors will enter the maze and learn the story of Santa’s missing reindeer while marveling at the intricate light designs and walking through the falling snow. The crown jewel of the maze is the 100-foot decorated pine Christmas tree, one of the tallest on the East Coast.
There’s plenty to do inside the attraction. Visit Santa and Mrs. Claus, and get your picture taken, go ice skating on the skating trail, watch a holiday film in the cinema, and enjoy all the live Christmas entertainment. The little ones can spend time in the kids’ zone, filled with kid-friendly activities and entertainment. There will also be a Christmas Market on-site with unique holiday decor and holiday gifts.

After you work up an appetite in the maze and on the trail, its time to enjoy treats from some of the best establishments in DC. Ben’s Chili Bowl will be on hand with a special holiday chili, and Maribeth’s Bakery and Dog Tag Bakery will have tasty sweets and baked goods. Don’t forget the hot chocolate, mulled wine, or seasonal cocktail from the Ice Bar and Lounge.
