Kick off the season at the President’s Circle and Guild premier holiday event!

This year's festive evening will feature seasonal activities, entertainment, and refreshments. Plus, families are invited to preview Wonderland Express, the Garden’s 10,000-square-foot indoor exhibition of miniature trains winding over bridges, under trestles, past waterfalls, and through 80 mini-replicas of Chicago's favorite landmarks, before it opens to the public.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held outside, so please dress for the weather.
