Every year the Ashebrooke Community in Cumming, Georgia lights up their homes to bring joy to the area and raise funds for a local cause.
Planning a visit? There is heavy traffic towards the end of December. Please be mindful of residents getting to their homes – put on your flashers and visit after 7:00pm. Thank you.
JOY, LIGHTS, & A GIFT
The Ashebrooke community nominates an individual(s) within the community who could use a little extra holiday magic due to trying circumstances. We’ve been known to select organizations as recipients as well.
Our goal is to help those in need within the local community.
For 2018, the Ashebrooke Night of Lights event is raising money for
Family Promise of Forsyth.
Family Promise is a local organization whose mission is to empower and assist families who are experiencing homelessness and gain sustainable independence. Please make a donation on their website, fpforsyth.org
We raise funds two different ways:
(1) Residents make direct donations.
(2) Donations from you! Head to Family Promise of Forsyth to make a donation today!
In December our homes are lit to showcase the joy and wonder of the season.
On 1 BIG night – December 16, 2018 – the spirit of the season bursts throughout the neighborhood as our entire Ashebrooke community creates a spectacle. In prior years we’ve been known to see Santa, falling snow, hot cocoa, cider, reindeer, bag pipers, our famous live nativity scene populated by Ashebrooke kids and so, so much more.
It truly is a can’t miss event.

2018 Night of Lights
December 16, 2018
Prior recipients who have benefitted from the Night of Lights include:
We’re all homeowners who have a passion and desire to bring joy, community spirit, lots of lights, and give a little extra to the electric company every year. 😉
Don’t let the bucket lifts and giant ladders fool you, our display aren’t professional but we really try our best to wow you so we hope you enjoy.
Contrary to what you may read online, there is no “light show” – just 300+ homes lit up to varying degrees for the holiday season. However, yes there are a few homes with music to accompany their lights.
Residents, local businesses like A1 Heritage Landscape Supply, Southern Way Insurance Agency, and since the event has grown so popular in recent years, the Forsyth County Police Department generously donates their time to provide traffic assistance.
Out of the 310+ properties in Ashebrooke, generally 90% participate.
The Annual Night of Lights has happened 12 times starting in 2006 – the light displays and attendance grows every year.
On week nights in December it can take 30 minutes to an hour.
On weekends between 45 minutes to an hour and a half.
Please know that as residents, we try and be patient with the giant line of cars throughout our streets in December. It is stressful time, so forgive us if we grow anxious to get in and out of our homes.
Help us out by putting on your flashers if viewing lights so we might move around your vehicle if on-coming traffic is clear. Thank you and enjoy the lights!
