Perfect for date nights, family outings and everything in between, NightGarden welcomes you into a dream-like world filled with thousands of lights, unique sculptures, an augmented reality adventure, and more! From rainbow-colored pathways to bubbles to Archimedes, a talking tree, NighGarden will have stunning surprises around every bend.
If you’re wondering what the experience will be like, we’ve broken it down for you below — even if you’ve been in the past, new enchanting surprises are in store this year!
Far more than just a light show, NightGarden will transform the sprawling Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden into something truly magical. Using an incredible combination of lighting effects, outdoor holograms, motion sensing technology, projection mapping, and atmospheric music, NightGarden will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a fairytale.
The art installations and FairyScope™ app are the cherry on top of the experience! From whimsical technicolor flowers and unique sculptures, to an augmented reality adventure that takes you on a quest to find the Fairy Queen’s lost subjects, NightGarden will wow the whole family.
This year, NightGarden will feature more than 12 experience stations, including 5 brand new illuminated zones. Some of these new areas include, but are not limited to a Winter Wonderland, complete with periodic snowfall, and a Conservatory filled with playful fairy lights.
We’re particularly excited about the new Above The Trees Lookout, which will provide stunning views of Glade Lake and the illuminated swirling grass sculptures!
NightGarden would not be complete without some tasty treats. Thankfully, some of Miami’s most beloved food trucks will be in attendance to satisfy all of your food and drink cravings. We can’t wait to indulge in familiar favorites, and check out any new vendors on-site!
Every thirty minutes, NightGarden guests will have the opportunity to head out to the main dance floor for a dance party. Since most visitors will spend 60 to 90 minutes exploring the twists and turns within this light extravaganza, there’s plenty of time to squeeze in a dance moment. After all, how could you not want to move and groove in such a festive atmosphere?
Even without the magic of NightGarden illuminating its grounds, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a must-visit destination for anyone in South Florida. Filled with an extensive collection of rare tropical plants, the botanic garden has something for everyone to enjoy!
Whether you want to explore a playful learning environment at the Children’s Garden, or marvel at the world’s most magnificent aquatic plants at Sibley Victoria Pool, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is bound to amaze visitors of all ages.
