'Winter Lights' Holiday Light Show Returns To N.C. Arboretum


November 11, 2019

The North Carolina Arboretum will once again light up Asheville this holiday season with its sixth annual “Winter Lights” holiday light show. On display nightly, Friday, Nov. 22, through Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, from 6 to 10 p.m., “Winter Lights” is an outdoor walking experience through the Arboretum’s nationally known gardens dressed in more than half-a-million holiday lights.

Designed with an artistic aesthetic, this family-friendly event includes beautifully lit displays and glowing landscapes, interactive games and activities, live entertainment, and festive food and beverages available for purchase.

Considered Asheville’s brightest holiday tradition, “Winter Lights” is the Arboretum’s largest fundraising event of the year, and proceeds help support the Arboretum’s educational programs, exhibits and facilities year-round.

This year, the Arboretum will be launching its new “Magical Maple” display, which showcases Western North Carolina’s native red maple tree through lights, music and art. Featuring four signature trees located alongside the Arboretum’s grassy knoll, the display will illuminate to musical hits from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.

Tickets for “Winter Lights” range from $8 - 25 and are date and time specific. Children 4 and under are free. This year, the Arboretum is offering guests the opportunity to purchase flex tickets, which give visitors the option to easily exchange the date of their purchased ticket for another night without any additional penalty. The Arboretum will also be offering several different discounted ticket opportunities, including its “Friends and Family” Tuesday night promotion (excluding Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve) and “Arboretum Week,” Dec. 2 - 5. Arboretum members receive $2 off each ticket purchased. Many nights, including weekends and holidays, are likely to sell out, and visitors are strongly encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance. Tickets for “Winter Light” can be purchased online at http://www.ncwinterlights.com.
