Conservatory Aglow will return to Franklin Park Conservatory on November 19.
Thousands of lights will illuminate the grounds of the Conservatory, offering visitors the opportunity to explore the gardens after dark. From the musical light show to a reimagined Topiary Collection, this year’s event will be fun for visitors of all ages.
This year offers some new displays including the light show in the rainbow tunnel, a disco-themed dance party, a musical light show, and more. Of course, it wouldn’t be Conservatory Aglow without the tried and true favorites like the gingerbread house display and the ornament trees, constructed with glass-blown ornaments from the hot shop at the Conservatory.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy an illuminated interior of the Conservatory. The paths through the different biomes will be glowing with candlelight and the amazing Chihuly collection will be illuminated, offering a soft glow from each of the installations.
In addition to the lights, there will also be entertainers and musicians performing in the gardens on select evenings. You can view the calendar of entertainers here, but if you have any interest in getting in a good word with Santa before Christmas, you can swing by on December 17-18 when Santa and his reindeer will be on hand.
Tickets for Conservatory Aglow can go quickly, so it’s recommended that you make your reservations in advance. The exhibition is considered a Special Engagement, so tickets are $25 for non-members and $12.50 for members. There are discounts available.
