Night Lights at the Gardens will take place on Wednesday through Saturday nights February 1-4, February 8-11, and February 15-18. Night Lights will take place from 6-9 p.m. and will stay open until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

Night Lights at the Gardens completely transforms the Botanical Gardens, using colors and tones inspired by the natural world that will focus on the gorgeous plant collection, the beautiful Lord & Burnham glass domes, and of course, the waterfall in the Ancient Rainforest. Night Lights at the Gardens is a family-fun event where children and adults can enjoy this unique experience together and interact with the lights and sounds.

This year, Night Lights at the Gardens is utilizing a few Western New York artists to enhance the show. The cinematic sounds of Lazlo Hollyfeld, will be featured on February 3, John & Mary on February 10 and the Gahu Drum Ensemble’s rhythmic percussions on February 17.  Each artist will begin at 8:00pm.  Also new this year, Buffalo artist Zach Boehler will be installing sculptures inside the Botanical Gardens to enhance the visitor’s experience.
