Come wintertime, NightGarden is a must-see in Southern Florida. After another successful run, where the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden once again transformed into a luscious holiday wonderland, NightGarden is saying goodbye on January 20th.
Featuring five new installations, as well as the return of Archimedes the talking tree and a fairy quest illuminated by more lights than ever, this year’s NightGarden experience is not to be missed.
NightGarden is far more than just a light show. Unlike many holiday shows where sparkling lights are the center of attention, Miami’s own experience combines light and color with interactive technology. This unexpected combination brings Archimedes to life, a wise talking tree that answers any and all questions. Imposing Giant Dandelions also come alive during the experience, making their highly-anticipated return since the first NightGarden edition.
Rainbow-colored paths and technicolor flowers decorate the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, planting easter eggs across the garden for family and friends to discover.
What’s really special about NightGarden is the multisensory nature of all of its activities, and the experience’s fairy quest takes the crown. Using the free FairyScope™ augmented reality app, you’ll head on a journey through the illuminated garden to find the Fairy Queen and her lost subjects. It’s a super fun activity for the whole family, where you’ll be testing your teamwork skills!
NightGarden is now taking place every week through January 20th. The experience lasts around 60 to 90 minutes, with standard adult tickets starting at $30 and children of all ages welcome. Food trucks and drinks are also available on site, featuring some of Miami’s best.
