Atlanta Botanical Gardens Garden Lights Holiday Lights
Updated: Nov 20, 2022
Want to walk in a Winter Wonderland of lights? Then check out the Atlanta Botanical Garden Lights, Holiday Lights. This is one of my families favorite holiday places to visit.
It is open now through January 14,2023 from 5-11pm. This is separate from the day ticket. It started in 2010 and has been a family tradition for us!
To limit gathering crowds upon arrival, there are two entrances: General Admission ticket holders enter through the gates by Mershon Hall which is just at the end of the parking deck. I suggest after you enter go to the building to see the plants first as the lines can get long here and you enter right near here. Premium and Premium+ ticket holders enter through the Hardin Visitor Center, the main entrance.
There are three levels of tickets. Pick which is best for your family.
Premium Plus The Premium + ticket package is our most flexible - and festive! - Garden Lights experience. Includes Flex Tix, express entry and anytime arrival on the night of your scheduled visit. Plus, each ticket comes with a cloth face mask, lighted bulb necklace, hologram glasses and drink ticket.

General Non-refundable; vaild only for date selected at time of purchase and not transferable to another night. No rain checks for inclement weather. Price does not include $5/per order processing fee
Get your necklaces and holiday lights for the kids before hand and save money. It would be fun if your elf brought them the night before, you can buy these items there.
Click here to get 4 light glasses (Amazon Affilaite) for less then 2 glasses there. Each one will have a different look, meaning when you look through one you see a Santa in the lights, one a reindeer, one a snowman and one a candy cane.
They do sell snacks like smore kits, and drinks there, yes even for adults.
There are smore pits when you exit the building with the plants. You get one kit and a stick and each group has a fire pit. I think there were 5 spots and they even had a frie blanket at each one.
We like to get there at 5pm so the kids can see the train in the natural light.
We then walk back and look as we walk to the other side and see the great light show set to music.
Restrooms are near the gift shop and the Poinsettia area so make sure you stop when you are near there. There is also one in the building below the trains.
Dress for the weather as you are outside almost the whole time. This event is rain or shine.
It is cards only to purchase while at the garden.
Monday-Wednesday parking is $5 or $10
Other days are $10
Get there early as parking can take some time.
No Outside food allowed
Wheelchairs (free) and electric scooters ($25 plus tax) are available to rent
Strollers are allowed (maybe bring a blanket too if it is cold) no wagons!
They do have a restaurant inside the gardens. I encourage you to get a reservation ahead of time.
