Conservatory Aglow

11-17-2018 01-02-2019

Conservatory Aglow returns for the biggest and brightest holiday show in the history of the Conservatory, extending beyond the building and into The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden as well as the Grand Mallway.

Artfully placed light installations highlight the lush horticulture displays within the interior biomes and courtyards, while the classic poinsettia plant floods the Dorothy M. Davis Showhouse with rich holiday colors. The Paul Busse model railway, hand-blown glass ornament trees, and family-favorite poinsettia trees provide the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities.

Conservatory Aglow is open 10am–5pm beginning November 17. From December 1–January 2, 2019, the Conservatory will be open 10am–9pm (excluding December 24 & 25). Adult libations and seasonal food offerings will be sure to get guests into the holiday spirit while strolling through the grounds and taking in all that is Conservatory Aglow.

Ahlum & Arbor Tree Preservation is the Presenting Sponsor for Conservatory Aglow.
