Bright Nights

November 23, 24, 27, and 30

December 1, 7, 8, 14-23, 26-30 

January 2-5  

Open from 5 to 8 p.m.  



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. 

The garden will glow with the holiday spirit from the twinkling trees in the birch forest, to the exotic creatures in the conservatory, and will be transformed into a winter wonderland filled with unique and festive decor, a magnificent and majestic 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree, giant gingerbread houses, the whir and whistle of the holiday express, and other illuminated displays.

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.


Need a sweet treat or a bite to eat?
