White and pale pink poinsettias will fill the conservatory during the 2016 holiday display.


From family photos against the stunning backdrop of the conservatory to a peaceful winter stroll along lighted pathways, it's easy to create memorable moments during the holiday season at Powell Gardens. 

Christmas Couture Conservatory Exhibit 

Celebrate the holidays in high fashion with this season's non-traditional conservatory exhibit, featuring dress form Christmas trees and sparkling white poinsettias accented with a splash of pink. Bring your camera—this is the perfect setting for photos with family and friends. The exhibit is open daily (except Christmas and New Year's Day) from November 19 through January 8.

Update on 2016 Breakfast with Santa

We were sad to do it, but we decided to cancel this year's Breakfast with Santa. We invite you to join us for the Luminary Walk on December 10 and 11 instead—Santa and Mrs. Claus will be here both evenings.
