Once again, Lauritzen Gardens is making the holiday season merry and BRIGHT! The holiday poinsettia show and the Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory will be adorned and enhanced with light as the garden extends its hours to celebrate the beauty of the season. 

Set a merry mood with friends and family and explore the illuminated indoor gardens. From a 20' tall poinsettia tree to a tropical paradise, see festive installations that glow and shine, showcasing nature in a new light.

These enchanted evenings are sure to become a holiday tradition. As you tour the glistening indoor gardens, gather around the crackling fire, write letters to Santa, shop for thoughtful holiday gifts in the gift shop, enjoy holiday music (on select nights), purchase a S'mores kit to roast a marshmallow, enjoy the family-friendly activities in the Family Chill Zone, create art in the Lite-Brite Forest, and more.

Delight in the joy of the holidays and create extraordinary memories with your family and friends at the garden this winter.
