Prepurchased Tickets with Arrival Time Required for all Visitors

Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights

A holiday tradition featuring lights, decorations,  model trains, holiday dinners, hot chocolate (for purchase) & more. Lewis Ginter GardenFest of Lights is the region’s ultimate holiday extravaganza!

With limited capacities, timed arrivals and a no-refund policy, you will need to plan carefully and pay close attention when purchasing your tickets.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the number of attendees is very limited. We are asking guests to limit visits to one hour so as many people as possible can enjoy the show. Since all displays are outdoors this year, an hour is ample time for most to view the lights. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and patience.

Non-members: there is a Value Season the first 4 weeks of GardenFest (Nov. 23-Dec. 17) and a Bonus Season the last week (Jan. 4-10). Admission is the same price as last year during these times. During the Peak Season (Dec. 18-Jan. 3), there is an admission increase of $4 per ticket.

There are three timeframes throughout GardenFest this year:
Value Season: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Peak Season: Dec. 18-Jan. 3
Bonus Season: Jan. 4-10

GardenFest is a “rain or shine” event; only closed for extreme weather.

Please note: We are using the Eventbrite ticketing system used in previous years and there is a small service fee.
