The Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows and light show have been an annual tradition for years. Tons flock to Fifth Avenue each winter season to see the imaginative window designs and breathtaking light show.

What’s the 2023 theme for the Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows?
Though this year’s theme has yet to be announced, last year’s windows were inspired by both special gifts from years past and the partnership with The Rocket Fund. Rocket ships and nostalgic games were seen within the six windows, creating scenes that were best described as “whimsy” and full of “brilliant colors.”
The year before, the six iconic Fifth Avenue windows “[were] inspired by the theme of reconnecting with family and loved ones during the holiday season.” They asked NYC children (including members of the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club) to draw & describe their holiday dreams with loved ones, and then the incredible artists and engineers at Saks brought it all to life in amazing holiday wonder.
