| November 6, 2022 | 0 Comments

Lightscape will transform the 37-acre San Diego Botanic Garden from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday, November 18 through Sunday, January 1, except for Christmas Day. The enchanting, after-dark, illuminated trail will span one mile and feature spectacular sights with eye-catching artistic installations from international artists that come alive at night with color, imagination, and sound.

“We are ecstatic to announce that Lightscape is making its San Diego debut at San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas during the 2022 holiday season,” said San Diego Botanic Garden President and CEO, Ari Novy, PhD. “Visitors to the Garden will experience this internationally-renowned holiday light show, unlike anything San Diego venues have offered before. Following sold-out shows in cities around the world, we look forward to transforming the Garden into an enchanting, festive, after-dark spectacular where family and friends celebrate and make memories. We are thrilled to launch what we know will become a San Diego holiday tradition.”

Lightscape has been dazzling the world’s biggest cities over the last ten years including sold-out runs in London, Chicago, Melbourne and New York. This year, Lightscape plans to equally establish itself as a celebrated holiday tradition in San Diego.

Set along a beautifully illuminated walking trail custom-designed for San Diego, Lightscape ticketholders will walk a one-mile-long path with suspended strands and tunnels of light, a fire garden, lantern trees and artistic installations, while toasting marshmallows over a fire and drinking hot chocolate and other seasonal drinks along the trail.

This one-of-a-kind, immersive experience at the garden will guide visitors through a festive world of wonder with over one million twinkling lights in various attractions from the Cathedral of Light to the Star Tunnel and the Fire Garden.

San Diego Botanic Garden is producing Lightscape in association with Sony Music, which amazes millions of people year after year with similar shows in multiple locations across the world, including the U.K. and Australia. Additionally, Lightscape is creatively produced by Culture Creative and promoted in partnership with WAD Entertainment.

Tickets start at $29 for adults, $18 for children ages 3-12, and free for ages 2 and under. Entry times are every 15 minutes, and tickets are available for purchase online by visiting
