A holiday tradition featuring more than half-a-million twinkling lights, hand-crafted botanical decorations, model trains, holiday dinners, firepit with s’mores and hot chocolate (for purchase); nightly family activities & more. The region’s ultimate holiday extravaganza!

This year’s GardenFest theme explores a world of Living Color: how the world’s kaleidoscope of colors speaks to us, impacts nature and influences culture. 

See colorful translucent butterflies in flight, stained glass-inspired illuminations, sparkling white light transformed into a brilliant rainbow, floating flowers opening and reaching toward “sunlight,” fields of brightly colored blooms waving in the moonlight, illuminated spheres dancing in the sky and more! Explore Living Color and experience a light-filled adventure glowing with the vibrant hues of our world.

A “rain or shine” event; only closed for extreme weather. Tickets are not date specific and may be purchased at the Garden (9 a.m. – 10 p.m.), online or by phone at 1-800-594-TIXX. Please note tickets ordered online & by phone require 24 hours for processing and convenience fees apply.
