Enchant Christmas DC has taken over the Washington National’s Stadium. Enchant Christmas offers Christmas magic as you’ve never seen before. I’m talking the World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze and Market. A 90,000 custom-designed light maze to be exact!

Enchant Christmas DC
The crazy part is this picture doesn’t even do the Enchant Christmas DC justice. The piece de resistance is a lit pine tree that stands at a whopping 100-feet. That is taller than the holiday tree at Rockefeller Centre in New York City!
You enter a luminescent land of larger-than-life sculptures as snow gently falls all around you.
There are a lot of things to do, the skating trail is a popular one. It is located on the side of the light maze so you are still consumed by the magic. You can bring your own skates or rent a pair. Note: Ice skating is included with the price of admission, but you need to complete a waiver prior to entry. There is a cost for renting skates, if you bring your own skates, they must have blade guards and be in a clear bag.
They have a variety of food and beverage vendors. Above is a Half Smoke from the Historical Ben’s Chili Bowl. It was delicious.
My Aunt and Uncle were stationed in Germany so I love me some Schnitzel. This is the first time I’ve had it outside of my home though. It was delicious too.
Enchant Christmas DC has the beverage game on lock. They have boozy and non-boozy Hot Chocolate and Mulled Cider. The cider with the Heritage Brown Sugar Bourbon is everything your heart and soul needs. I had the non-boozy hot chocolate but get yours with Founding Spirits Amaro & Whiskey. Tis the season…
This is the most popular drink at Enchant Christmas DC. It is so bomb, you will keep sipping. Founding Spirits Vodka, Apple Juice, Lemon-Honey Simple Syrup. It comes in this light bulb “cup” and lights up all night. It is dope and hella delicious.
Ms. Ali is the co-founder of Ben’s Chili Bowl. She and her husband Ben Ali opened the doors of Ben’s Chili Bowl in 1958. In 1963 they donated food to those marching on Washington for Civil Rights (M.L.K. Jr.). They survived the DC riots in 1968, and more to become a true pillar of the community. They still use the original secret recipe for their fresh homemade chili.
The first time I went I was with my bestie and ran into the rest of my squad for a night of debauchery and photo ops. Enchant is a non-stop photo opp, be ready. Charge up your phone, pull out your big camera and capture these lights.
Cheat Code: If you haven’t snapped that perfect Christmas Card picture then do so while you are here. Take it solo, grab your Bae, take pictures of the kids, or hand your phone to a stranger for a group shot.
After I had all the fun with the girls on Media Night I came back with the family. They enjoyed it, but were not here for my sh!ts and giggles!
Enchant Christmas DC is here until December 29th. It is a rain or shine event so come prepared. Layer up to keep warm, don’t forget your hat, scarf, and gloves. Get tickets!
Additional Things to Note
Strollers are not allowed in the maze, however, they do have complimentary Stroller Valet. Everywhere else is stroller-friendly. If you have a little baby wearing them in a harness for your chest or back is ideal for maneuvering around. The weekends are the most crowded, so go during the week if you can.
