Please note that January 4 is the last night for Garden d'Lights.***

Brought to you by the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society and Bellevue Parks and Community Services, Garden d’Lights features thousands of lights which transform the Garden into a blossoming winter wonderland.

Garden d’Lights runs from Saturday, November 30, 2013 – Saturday, January 4, 2014, every evening from 5 – 10 pm (last entry at 9:30 pm). It is more important than ever to visit early in the season, early in the week, and early in the evening.


The Garden is undergoing major construction of new facilities. Though d’Lightful as ever, this year’s event features a shorter route and new ticket booth location. As always, hot beverages will be available at the Shorts Visitor Center, and friendly volunteers will provide a warm welcome. Please note that due to construction, there is no on-site limited mobility parking; however there is a drop-off area just east of the Garden d’Lights entry. The gift shop is on hiatus until the new building is finished, so look for our amazing new shop at next year’s event!

Hundreds of volunteers work year round to bundle strings of lights into three dimensional flowers, shrubs, and vines. In addition to artistic interpretation of plants, the volunteer team has created charming animal characters. New to this year’s display is “Honey Bear” surrounded by his honey pots.

During the first three weeks of November, these creations are 'planted' in the Botanical Garden. Then, with the flick of a switch on November 30, this magical holiday garden blooms every evening from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., (last entry at 9:30 p.m.) through January 4.
