Updated for 2019!
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is once again presenting Garden Lights, Holiday Nights for the 2019 holiday season. This year’s light display combines new features with perennial favorites. You’ll find all-new music and motion for Nature’s Wonders, which is said to be the largest curtain of synchronized light and sound in the world.
Garden Lights, Holiday Nights runs nightly from November 16, 2019 through January 11, 2020 — and this includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. The lights are on from 5 to 11 p.m.
Ticket prices depend on which night you go, and when you purchase tickets. Here’s the scoop on hours, prices, and ways to save a few bucks. Sales tax will be added to all the prices listed here.
