The sounds of the season resonate throughout our indoor and outdoor Gardens during our musically-inspired display.

A towering 18-foot Fraser Fir exquisitely decorated with a garland of real musical instruments takes center stage in our elegant Music Room. Strolling carolers, daily sing-alongs, and special performances fill the Conservatory with festive cheer. Delight in our holiday horticulture showcasing more than 6,000 seasonal plants and 50 trees adorned with sparkling red, gold, and green glass ornaments—including a 30-foot floral tree created with hundreds of vibrant red poinsettias.

Outside, the sounds of oohs and aahs fill the air as illuminated stars twinkle above, colorful fountains dance to holiday music, and a half-million lights brighten the night.
