Saks 5th Avenue Lights Show – Key Info

After having revealed to you WHEN the HOLIDAY SEASON OFFICIALLY BEGINS in NYC (if you haven’t already done so, we suggest you read our article by clicking HERE) it’s time to start going into a little more detail about the main Holiday Seasons Events in NYC and among these we must absolutely mention the fantastic Lights and Sounds Show at Saks 5th Avenue.

Where is Saks 5th Avenue?

Saks 5th avenue, as the name implies, is located on the 5th Avenue, just a few steps from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. The location is really central and is easily accessible both on foot and by subway.

When does the Saks 5th Avenue Light and Sound show start?

There is no official date for the opening ceremony, but based on the experience of past years, we can tell you that the show opens a few days before Thanksgiving.

To give you an example, in 2021 the opening was on November 24.

If you are planning a trip to NYC during the last week of November, don’t forget also that our Dyker Heights + D.U.M.B.O. : Christmas Lights Tour starts this year on November 25th, 2022. Please find below the links with all the information.
