Northern Colorado's holiday tradition

Garden of Lights

Garden of Lights is expanded and enhanced in 2019! As one of Northern Colorado's best holiday traditions, stroll through the whimsically decorated and twinkling Gardens lit by hundreds of thousands of LED lights at the Gardens on Spring Creek. The event is open DECEMBER 13-29 (excluding Dec. 25) - 5-9 p.m. each evening.

With a route that has doubled in size, you will be able to see perennial flower beds, huge sculptural flowers, grapevines, butterflies, holiday village, and other favorite garden creatures—all  constructed entirely from holiday lights. New and not to miss this year ~ An animated Color Blossom Show will light up the Great Lawn at The Gardens. 700 lighted blossoms will dance along the lawn, adding a new spectrum of vibrant colors and movement to the show. Opportunities to visit with Santa, listen to holiday music, enjoy holiday reindeer and magical dog troupes, along with other new discoveries are sure to bring the spirit of the holidays to your family.

Admission is $8-$11 per person. Children under two years of age are admitted free. The Butterfly House is closed during Gardens of Lights. Last paid entry is one hour prior to closing. The show will be open Dec. 24; closed Dec. 25.
