Since 1977. As Desert Botanical Garden celebrates its Las Noches de las Luminarias, we invite you to join us for one of Arizona’s best holiday events. For 16 magical nights, the Garden will come to life with the soft glow from more than 8,000 hand-lit luminaria bags, thousands of white twinkle lights and the vibrant sounds and sights of 10 entertainment groups. Enjoy dinner at the Garden with family and friends, and stroll each path with a warm cup of cider or cocoa. The Southwest elegance and beauty of the Garden at night will remind you of what the season is all about. To create the best guest experience you may choose a ticket for 5:30 - 9:30 p.m. or 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. Limited tickets for each time period will be available. REMINDER: The Garden is closed in the evening on Dec. 24 and for the entire day on Dec. 25 for the holidays. Please do not purchase admission for this event on Dec. 24 or 25.
