Chihuly Nights

Experience Chihuly: Celebrating Nature under the stars during Chihuly Nights, happening from 7–10pm on the second Fridays of July, August, September and October. All 21 installation locations of Chihuly: Celebrating Nature, presented by Nationwide and the Davis Foundation, have been professionally lit to create a breathtaking view within the backdrop of the botanical gardens and courtyards.

The evenings also include an opportunity to view the historic John F. Wolfe Palm as it is illuminated by James Turrell’s Light Raiment II and to explore the Conservatory’s garden biomes after dusk, including Bonsai now on display in the Dorothy M. Davis Showhouse. (The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden will not be open during Chihuly Nights.) The Garden Café (which serves snacks, light meals, beer, wine and other beverages), Botanica Gift Shop and Chihuly: Celebrating Nature gift store will be open during Chihuly Nights.
