Special Edition

The 2019 CALM Holiday of Lights was another success! If you blew it off- well then, your heart was clearly two sizes too small!
A holiday tradition and voted Bakersfield’s Best Annual Event, Holiday Lights features a dazzling musical tree show and creative, animated displays with more than 3 million colorful, energy-efficient LED lights. Designed and installed by Josh Barnett and his company Lightasmic!, the event runs nightly Saturday, November 30, 2019 through Saturday, January 4, 2020 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM (gates close at 8:30 PM), Closed on Christmas. Come celebrate the 17th year of this amazing event, named by the Los Angeles Times as one of the top ten light shows in the western United States!
Proceeds raised from Holiday Lights, which nets about $200,000 annually, help fund new exhibits and repairs at the nearly 35-year-old zoo.
