Starting Friday, November 10, and running on select dates until January 7, 2024, Lightscape at the Chicago Botanic Garden will dazzle with brand-new installations and beloved favorites offering guests the chance to immerse themselves in a world of light, color, and sound.
Returning for its fifth year, the 1.3-mile reimagined trail will include installations from around the world and beloved classics like the 110-foot Winter Cathedral.
After debuting in 2019, the trail of twinkling lights has been a complete sell-out in its first four seasons.
The electrifying experience offers visitors the chance to embrace the season’s beauty with a must-do winter bucket list activity in Chicago.
This year’s all-new path features radiant new works from a range of international artists created just for the Chicago Botanic Garden including:
- Lilies, from UK artist Jigantics: Illuminated 5-foot lilies float elegantly on water, providing a mesmerizing view from the bridge above and igniting a sense of warmth and excitement.
- Night Lights, from French artist TILT: Delicate lamp-shaped lights that extend nearly 19 feet high amplify a cozy atmosphere with a display of soft ambient colors.
- Sea of Light, from UK artist Ithaca: Thousands of individually controlled balls of LED light make Evening Island sparkle and dance their way to a bespoke soundtrack in multiple patterns and colors.
Adult tickets are $30 for members and $34 for nonmembers, and child tickets are $19 for members and $21 for nonmembers. Children 2 and under are free.
Lightscape is open on select days through November, December, and January from 4.30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
Lightscape is produced in partnership with Sony Music and creatively produced by Culture Creative.
