Daytime tickets DO NOT include admission to Bright Nights.
it’s a visit to the iconic 20’ tall poinsettia tree, a tour through the lush
conservatory to see the holiday express, roasting marshmallows on the festival
garden patio, or finding the perfect gift in the gift shop, there is a natural
magic at Lauritzen Gardens that makes the season Merry & Bright.
This year, celebrate the joys of winter with a botanical-inspired version of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Tour 12 displays, each representing a day in the winter garden, and sing along with new lyrics to the classic holiday song. From a lark in a cottonwood tree to 5 goldenrods (in golden rings), and from 8 weeds-a-milking to 11 pines-a-pining, each display adds beauty to the show, while accompanying signs educate guests about native plants and wildlife and symbols of the holiday season.
The festive foliage of the iconic 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree will add holiday magic to the show and the whir and whistle of model garden trains will create a joyful noise in the lush conservatory. Don’t miss this botanical world brimming with holiday cheer!
Add S’more joy to your visit by toasting a marshmallow at the fire pits in the Family Chill Zone. This gathering place gives families a place to relax, warm up, play games, and enjoy the winter weather. S’mores kits will be available for purchase at the front desk.
The cafe is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily and J's Coffee is serving seasonal hot and cold beverages from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
