The Missouri Botanical Garden lights up the holiday season with its annual Garden Glow. More than a half million lights will illuminate some of the Garden's most iconic locations, walkways will be transformed into sensory light tunnels providing an explosion of visual magic, and traditional candlelight village displays will delight crowds of all ages.

Wishing Trees, Snow Balls, and "Glowmen" will all light the night sky, and provide interactive fun for guests of all ages. Your family will love exploring the glowing snowman garden, magical light tunnels, interactive photo opportunities, s'mores, festive drinks and traditional holiday music. 

In addition to all the beautiful lights, Garden Glow offers singing, dancing, shopping and dining for the entire family.

Plus, meet Santa on Monday and Tuesdays nights, November 25 - December 17!

The Garden Glow is open nightly from 5-10 p.m. through January 4, 2020. Last entry is at 9 p.m. Closed Dec. 9, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Tickets also include admission to the Gardenland Express Holiday Flower and Train Show. 

Visit on Family Nights on select Wednesdays for special $3 kids' admission (ages 3-12). 

The cost to attend Garden Glow ranges from $8 to $18 per person, depending on age, date of attendance, and membership status. Tickets are date-specific and sold in limited quantities, so purchasing in advance is recommended. Merry and Bright Bargain Nights are held on Sundays through Thursdays November 24 - December 19.
