Lightscape at Chicago Botanic Garden

Embrace the beauty of winter and discover the brightest spot for holiday cheer during Lightscape at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Starting November 10 and running on select dates until January 7, 2024, the outdoor illuminated trail will dazzle with brand new installations from around the world and beloved favorites, transforming new parts of the Garden—including Evening Island—into festive landscapes of light, color, and sound.

This year’s all-new path features radiant new works created just for the Garden from international artists, including illuminated 5-foot lilies floating elegantly on water and delicate lamp-shaped lights with soft ambient colors extending 19 feet high. Additionally, favorite installations like the Winter Cathedral will return to the trail, along with a reimagined version of the Fire Garden.
