Lightscape Promises Magic this Holiday Season

Sold-out Crowds Expected, So Buy Your Tickets Now

Lights, music and magic—it’s the ultimate holiday wishlist. And it’s what Lightscape promises to bring to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden this winter.

Presented by Bank of America, Lightscape is a one-of-kind immersive experience that will take guests on a journey through the Garden along a walking trail lit by more than one million lights.

Reviews of Lightscape from guests in other cities are glowing:

“When we took our first steps into new territory we were dazzled.” — Marielle Bokor, “Third Coast Review,” Chicago

“This is no Disney-like adventure, but one in which nature and artistically created installations come together in harmony,” — Catherine D. Anspon, “PaperCity,” Houston

“Lightscape is an engaging feast for the senses—a superbly orchestrated cornucopia of creativity.” — Alex First, “The Blurb,” Sydney

Features will include the following:

  • Lilies – 12 giant illuminated lilies bursting with light and color that dance on the surface of the water.
  • Leaf Fall – 32 individually floating illuminated leaves that bring to life the often-dismissed beauty of falling leaves.
  • Singing Tree – An illuminated tree wrapped in LED light that reacts to the sound of music, with crescendos building from its roots to the tip of its trunk through its branches.
  • Neon Strings – Neon-coated strings that weave intricate illuminated lines within tree branches, creating geometric patterns in the dark.
  • Lomandra Grasses – 10 Lomandra grasses based on the native Australian grass that bathe the landscape in an ever-changing array of colors and patterns.
  • The Rose Garden – A sprawling installation of 5,000 handmade color-changing roses with life-like, silk leaves.
  • Bluebonnets – A field of 2,000 bluebonnets that come to life at dusk and bathe the landscape in bold blue and white LED pixel lights.
  • Winter Cathedral – A 110-feet-long cathedral illuminated by tens of thousands of LED light globes.
  • Fire Garden – Structures that fill the landscape with real fire created from hand-poured candles accompanied by contemplative music.
  • Triangulate – A 210-feet-long prism tunnel made up of 19 LED triangles creating an immersive sound and light experience.

Designed by a team of international artists, Lightscape has enjoyed sold-out runs in the world’s largest cities including London, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. Guests are encouraged to buy their tickets as soon as possible to book their favorite dates, reserve parking and save money on ticket prices.

“We are beyond ecstatic to announce that Lightscape is making its debut in Fort Worth during the 2022 holiday season, and that North Texans will have the opportunity to experience this internationally renowned holiday light show at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden for the first time,” says Patrick Newman, CEO & president of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. “We look forward to transforming the Garden into an enchanting after-dark spectacular like no other.”

What its producers describe as an “ode to the holiday season” will run November 18 and through January 8 on select nights. Tickets are required for admittance, with entry times available every 15 minutes from 5:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly.

“The average tour time from start to finish is 1.5 hours, although there is no time limit,” says Newman. “We encourage you to take your time and enjoy the experience.” The walking trail is a wide, paved path about one mile long. The entire route is wheelchair accessible.
