Peacock Lane
Between SE Belmont & SE Stark

It’s the most wonderful time of the year again, and the residents of Peacock Lane are happy to share that they will be displaying their lights from December 15th – December 31st.

This year to limit potential COVID exposure to our volunteer-based residents there will be no cocoa booth and no designated pedestrian nights only.

Organizers recommend driving through because if past years are any indication, the sidewalks will be packed with hundreds, if not thousands, of people.

We look forward to seeing you all soon and can’t want to hear your cheer and see your joy.

Happy Holidays Portland!

The Peacock Lane Experience
Since 1932, each house on this little street located in Southeast Portland has been decorating for Christmas. The houses mostly Tudors are adorned with creative light displays that include nativity scenes, rotating Christmas trees, and stunningly life-like replicas of Santa, Frosty, The Grinch, and a wide variety of colorful characters to bring festive joy to the holiday season for Portlanders.

Transportation and Parking
Traffic can become quite heavy in the area during the lights season.

Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to view the lights by foot, if possible, for the best experience. Utilize free street parking several blocks away or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi).

Please be respectful of our neighbors when parking in the area.

Note: Do Not park in Walgreens lot; they maintain their lot for their customers only

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Although there are no designated pedestrian-only nights, you can still walk to view the lights. You’ll just need to walk on the sidewalks. And please, with vehicle traffic expected to be heavy, stick to those sidewalks, don’t attempt to walk in the street itself.
  • It’s not safe, and it’ll make the drivers turn very Grinch’y , very quickly!
  • We recommend driving through because if past years are any indication, the sidewalks will be packed with hundreds, if not thousands, of people.
  • There is no charge to see the lights. And you should not be asked for donations or anything “monetary” when on the Lane.
  • Vehicle traffic will be heavy, plan to spend some time in traffic
  • There are no public restrooms
  • There is no special parking area set up. It’s all on-street parking, and we ask that you please be considerate of our neighbors – for example, don’t block driveways even if it’s “Just for a few minutes.”
  • Also, Wal-Greens will tow if you park in their lot and aren’t a customer.
  • The lights start on the 15th at 6pm. We do not light up earlier, as it would cause traffic jams almost immediately
