Evergy Festival of Lights at Powell Gardens

Purchase Admission

November 16-December 30, 2023

Wednesday-Sunday* | 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

During Evergy Festival of Lights at Powell Gardens, holiday lights turn Kansas City’s botanical garden into a winter wonderland. This year, Quixotic will transform the Conservatory (located in the Visitor Center) into Crystal Chambers. While the surrounding world sinks softly into a season of hibernation, uncover a new world beneath the frost.   

The winter festival will light Powell Gardens from November 16 – December 30, 2023 (Wednesday-Sunday, 5-10 p.m.). 

Make plans for a breath of fresh air during the hectic holiday season! Bundle up with family and friends while you stroll along a lighted outdoor path. Experience the natural joy of Powell Gardens through exceptional architecture and the landscape in the most festive season.

NEW! Crystal Chambers by Quixotic

While the surrounding world softly sinks into a season of hibernation, a new world is uncovered beneath the frost. We welcome you to Crystal Chambers, a realm where the gleam and glitter of winter converges under the soft glow of the Northern Lights to remind the world that there is magic within the darkness if one seeks it. Visionary icy landscapes meld with mystical performers to create a flurry of fleeting moments that must be experienced to be truly believed. 

Enter the Conservatory at Powell Gardens’ Evergy Festival of Lights to be fully immersed in Crystal Chambers. Included in festival admission Fridays and Saturdays (November 24-December 23). Pop-up performances will take place between 6-9 p.m.
