Atlanta Botanical Garden’s beloved and enchanting lighting spectacle, Garden Lights, Holiday Nights, has returned from now to January 16, 2021.

“Garden Lights, Holiday Nights, presented by Invesco QQQ, returns in 2020 with new safety protocols and spectacular lighted sculptures from the blockbuster exhibition, Alice’s Wonderland Reimagined,” the garden wrote on its event page.

“New in 2020, the Red Queen joins the White Rabbit and Phoenix in a glowing cast of larger-than-life sculptures twinkling with holiday cheer.”


This year, the garden is bringing back crowd-favorite, Nature’s Wonders. Billed as the “world’s largest choreographed curtain of light and sound”, the spectacular lighting display will feature new motion and music. Another fixture coming back to the garden this year is their glorious Ice Goddess, who will feature all new highlights in her “flowing locks”.

Regarding the new safety measures, the garden is operating on extremely reduced capacity – particularly on nights. Staff and visitors 10 or older must wear masks at all times indoors as well as any time outdoors when not able to maintain appropriate social distancing of six feet. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the grounds with many pathways marked as one-way. For a full list of the garden’s safety protocols, visit their website.

This year, Night Light Tickets, Block Tickets, and Group Tours, are not available for purchase. All tickets must be purchased online in advance of visit. Group ticket sales are limited to 8 per order.
