Event Highlights

Lightscape – Friday, November 22, through Sunday, January 5 (4:30 – 10 p.m.)
We have new magic for the holidays with the introduction of Lightscape, an enchanting, after-dark, illuminated trail inspired by and created just for the Garden. Along a mile-long path, the night will come alive with color, imagination and sound, from a playful choir of singing trees to a spectacular waterfall of light. Attendees will find themselves in the center of it all — stepping inside a sparkling tunnel, walking among immersive ribbons of light, enjoying a stunning festive finale and toasting marshmallows over a fire.
