Garden of d’Lights, an illuminary experience to glow your mind, weekend evenings (Fri/Sat/Sun) 5pm-8pm, November 30th-December 29th.

Advance ticket sales begin October 1st, 2019

The public is invited to experience The Ruth Bancroft Garden’s exciting new winter holiday event, Garden of d’Lights, an after sunset illuminary experience that uses a unique blend of laser, spot and LED lights to bring new life to the Garden’s cacti and succulents, and reveal shapes and textures unnoticed in sunlight.

In addition to the spectacular light show under the moon and stars, there will be special holiday-themed entertainment from community members plus vocal and instrumental performances by various Tri-Valley music groups. Refreshments will also be available for visitors, young and old, to enjoy as they meander the Garden’s paths to view this innovative lights presentation.

Garden of d’Lights is part of a continuing series of events welcoming the public into the Garden and its newly completed Coit Family Visitor and Education Center. The volunteer team putting together the physical show includes artists, electricians, and “tech savants” who will have worked together for almost a year to create this event. The Garden and Coit Family
Visitor and Education Center will also be available for company parties and other private event rentals, weekday evenings while Garden of d’Lights is going on.

Cameras are welcome and warm clothing is suggested so visitors are able to enjoy the entire 2.5-acre dry garden, created by Ruth Bancroft on property her family began as a ranch in the 1880s, that has today become an internationally acclaimed collection of plants from all over the world.

The Ruth Bancroft Garden is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization with a mission to preserve Ruth Bancroft’s example of exceptional design and expansive water conserving plant collection for the enjoyment and education of the public. The Garden will welcome over 17,000 visitors in 2019. Our community outreach programs offer over 60 workshops and classes annually and provide tours to more than 700 children, representing 22 Bay area schools, each year. All events are fundraisers, and 100% of the proceeds are used to maintain and operate the Garden.
