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!

In all cases, members may reserve the number of tickets allowed by their membership level. For example, an individual member can reserve one ticket. A dual member can reserve two. A family member can reserve 2 adults and up to 6 kids’ tickets. Friends members can reserve up to 4 adult and 8 kids tickets.

 

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.

Masks & Online Tickets with 30-Minute Arrival Window Required
