Every year Elon community members gather outside of the Alamance Building for the annual Festival of Lights. The celebration, in part, is a way to honor donors to the school by lighting lanterns and placing them along the pathways of the university. 

This year's holiday festival featured caroling by on-campus a capella groups, warm drinks and even a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. The event culminated with trees and building being lit up with holiday lights.
