Chihuly Nights

See the Conservatory’s Chihuly Collection in a whole new light during Chihuly Nights, happening from 7–10pm on the second Saturday of July, August, September and October. All 19 installations will be professionally lit to create a breathtaking view within the backdrop of the botanical gardens.

The evenings also include an opportunity to view the historic John F. Wolfe Palm as it’s illuminated by James Turrell’s Light Raiment II, to explore the Conservatory’s biomes after dusk, and experience exhibitions including the brand new Paul Busse Garden Railway in the Grand Mallway and Bonsai on display in the Dorothy M. Davis Showhouse.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden will be open until dusk during Chihuly Nights. The Conservatory food truck will serve a limited food menu, beer and wine. Botanica Gift Shop and Chihuly Gift Store will be open as well.
