If you and your family enjoy visiting Garvan Gardens’ Holiday Lights Show during the winter holidays, you can keep that tradition even in 2020. Of course, this year’s festivities will look a little different. 

“In light of the pandemic of 2020 and the need to provide an experience that allows for social distancing, it became obvious that the creation of a new daytime Winter Garden Festival would meet our goals of providing an event in which families could celebrate the winter holiday season with us just as in past years, yet in much safer circumstances,” announced executive director Bob Bledsoe. 

Returning features to look forward to: 

  • 50 foot Rose Tree

  • Holiday Train Garden

  • Kid-favorite James the Train

  • Frozen light world 

  • Light art installations created by interior design students from the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas

The 2020 Bonus:

With this year’s daytime hours, guests will be able to visit previously inaccessible exhibits including: 

  • Evans Children’s Adventure Garden 

  • Evans Tree House

  • Hixson Nature Preserve

  • Perry Wildflower Overlook
