Galaxy of Lights

Galaxy of Lights 2022
November 11 – January 1

Galaxy of Lights is a regional holiday tradition that takes place every November and December at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. For over 25 years, we have welcomed guests from near and far to explore the magnificent lights and enjoy the Garden when it’s decked for the holiday season. With both walking and driving experiences, Galaxy offers guests of all ages the chance to experience the magic, share in the tradition, and make memories together.

With new immersive displays and more Walking Nights than ever before, you won’t want to miss this year’s Galaxy of Lights!

Proceeds from Galaxy of Lights go directly to support the mission activities of the Garden. Whether you volunteer at the event, sponsor a light display, or buy a ticket, you are helping us serve our community as a source of plant conservation, education, and beauty all year long.
