Festival of Lights will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. Additional days (December 20-22 and December 27-29) have been added to accommodate seasonal holidays.
Head to Powell Gardens for the annual Festival of Lights, a breath of fresh air during a hectic holiday season. Wander an outdoor path featuring immersive light installations that are grounded in nature and celebrate the natural joy of the holiday season. More than 20 miles of holiday lights comprise installations that highlight the natural forms of Powell Gardens’ tree collection, show off the exceptional architecture and landscape design of the Gardens, and with Instagram and holiday card-worthy photo stops along the way.
Keep warm with hot chocolate and Louisburg cider as you take in the display from above atop the Missouri Barn Silo, deliver your holiday wish list to Santa, and shop for local and garden inspired gifts for your friends and family in The Marketplace at Powell Gardens.
