Stroll through the Arboretum gardens decked out in Winter Lights. Enjoy fresh air as you explore outdoor light displays, highlighting flowers, trees and the beauty of nature, on the one-mile self-guided walking route. 

New for 2023 will be a color-changing tunnel, a Winter Village on Scarecrow Hill and a field of sunflowers, all with more lights than ever before! Revisit the 16-foot Weeping Willow in a new space and walk through a giant apple, which pays tribute to the Arboretum’s Horticultural Research Center’s apple breeding, including the Honeycrisp apple. Visitors will also be able to purchase s'mores kits ($7 for 4 s'mores) to roast over an open fire at the S’mores Village.

The Arboretum’s Oswald Visitor Center and Snyder Building will be decorated for the season with a 25-foot Poinsettia Tree and four seasonally decorated, fresh-cut trees. The Poinsettia Tree, created using more than 500 living plants, will display colors of red, white and pink with new hues of gold, orange and green poinsettias. You might also hear holiday tunes from local performers from our live Winter Music Series, offered on most weekends.
