There's no denying that New York around the holidays is magical and to make it even more so, the New York Botanical Garden is transforming into a winter wonderland of twinkling lights this holiday season.

For the first time, the Bronx family attraction will host NYBG Glow, an all-new outdoor experience that will illuminate the grounds with the Garden's famous landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at its center — and it's going to be seriously beautiful. 

With lots of room to spread out, you can explore an enchanting world of color and light featuring thousands of energy-efficient LED lights and festive installations in the gardens and Reflecting Pool. 

The conservatory's facade will serve as a glittering canvas for the show's light and color display — an ideal backdrop for all of those holiday photo ops.

In addition to the whimsical outdoor scene, there will be ice carvings, steel drum performances so you can dance your way through, and other seasonal activities to enjoy (at a distance). 

Tickets are on sale now for $30 per adult. You can get them online for one of the following dates:

  • November 27 & 28
  • December 5, 12, 18, 19, 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30
  • January 1, 2 & 9

The experience operates rain or shine from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m, so dress for the weather.

You and your S/O can warm up with hot cocoa at the Pine Tree Café and enjoy signature pizzas on the Hudson Garden Grill patio with outdoor seating. The NYBG Shop is open for holiday shopping with limited capacity.

In order to follow safety and social distancing guidelines, a limited number of visitors will be admitted every half-hour with timed-entry tickets. It's important to note that walk-up tickets are not available.
