GardenFest of Lights Tour:
Behind the Scenes
Many connections occur before Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights opens. Networks of staff and volunteers merge their talents to plan the event, create hundreds of lighted forms, install miles of lights and prepare for opening night. Go behind the scenes to learn how the Garden quickly pivoted to implement an outdoor event filled with community favorites – peacock, dragon, giant flowers, animals and even sea creatures. Learn how volunteers – the Basement Buddies – go from chicken wire to light-filled forms that bring wonder and sparkle to visitors’ eyes. Acquire stories – baby caps, twisters and light fluffing – you can share with your family as you continue the GardenFest tradition.
This is an online virtual tour via Zoom.
