‘Tis the Season! The 8th annual Garden Lights, Holiday Nights returns to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens with a holiday tradition that is perfect for the whole family, or even an evening out on the town!
November 17th – January 6th, 2018
5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden will be shimmering and sparkling with every color of the rainbow during the holiday season. The Garden’s 30 acres will have a spectacular light show with over 1 million energy-efficient lights!
New for 2018
The new Skylights Lounge display will be showcased in the Skyline Garden, featuring several of the giant topiary-like sculptures from this summer’s popular mosaiculture exhibition, Imaginary Worlds: Once Upon a Time – all shown in a whole new light!
The high-tech “Nature’s Wonders” spectacle illuminates the Gardens with countless strands of synchronized dancing lights strung high over Storza Woods. Explore the Tunnel of Light along with favorites such as the Orchestral Orbs, Glittering Galaxy, Radiant Rainforest, and Model Trains that continue to make the exhibition a must-see holiday tradition.
In the Cascades Garden, unique lighting effects will cast a cool icy vibe at the “Liquid Lights” attraction. The “Starry Night Walk” will feature dozens of twinkling and swirling stars along the camellia walkways.
The attraction was originally inspired by Van Gough’s famous “Starry Night” painting with sparkling stars lining the walkways. The Great Lawn at the Garden will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind topiary light show called the “Orchestral Orbs” which will awe guests as they enjoy light shows choreographed to holiday music.
Come for the show and stay for dinner! The Garden’s restaurant will be open during Garden Lights, Holiday Nights. Enjoy premier views of the Southern Seasons Garden, Levy Parterre, Alston Overlook, and the Atlanta skyline as you dine!
