Taunton Lights on Festival

Taunton, MA 02780

The Annual Lighting of the Green and Lights On Festival is traditionally held every the Friday following the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Lighting of the Green has happened in the center of Taunton for over 100 years, and we hope this tradition will survive at least 100 more. The Lighting of the Green is typically coupled with a same-day Lights On festival, and a next-day Christmas parade.
