Are you curious to know what really goes into creating Gardenfest at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and especially how the themed light forms are created? Join Garden Guide, Bob Lincoln on an excursion to the basement of the Kelly Education Center to see how and where the magic happens.  View pictures of the forms in various stages of development and hear how each year’s theme is interpreted through their layout within the Garden. Take a guided tour around the Garden to see this year’s “basement buddy” creations and hear stories about how previous theme’s forms have been recycled and reused throughout the years.

All programs are subject to change.
