In 2015, Pacific NW Christmas Lights began maintaining a map of the best Christmas light displays in the Northwest, and they’re still going strong. They pinpoint every location on a Google map with a description of the location or event. Recommendations are always welcome, and they’re screened before they’re posted to the map.

The current map, which covers Washington, Oregon, Idaho, British Columbia, and Alberta, is pinned to the organization’s Facebook page through January and on its website. Locations are updated constantly, so check back regularly.

As the project grows, other organizations in the U.S. and Canada have partnered with Pacific NW Christmas Lights to share their best light displays in their cities, states, or regions. Here’s the list with links to their Facebook pages or groups. The links below lead to Facebook pages unless noted otherwise.
