It’s the news we’ve been waiting for; Shoshone Falls After Dark is returning for the third year. Historically, event tickets have sold out each night and it is a must that viewers get a ticket in advance!

Shoshone Falls is an astounding sight along the Snake River near Twin Falls. Nicknamed the Niagara of the West, the true beauty and power of this waterfall is best experienced in the spring.  To make it even more exciting, we have one more reason for you to visit this Spring. It is our pleasure to announce, Shoshone Falls will be illuminated after dark for year three of Shoshone Falls After Dark!

Come experience Shoshone Falls lit up with dazzling lights choreographed by Midnight Production Studios. The color changing patterns and designs will brilliantly light the falls and create a magical experience. See the falls lit up nightly from dark until about 11:00 for select nights in July 2023. Viewing the show will take place along the railing and overlook platform. You will not be able to see the show from a parked vehicle. Plan to be outside to take in all the beauty of Shoshone Falls.
