Tickets on Sale Now!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2021 Winter Lights holiday event will welcome members and guests back into the gardens as it returns to the traditional outdoor walk-through open-air show format. The famously tall 50-foot lighted tree and the Quilt Garden will be back, outfitted with new designs in lights, while throughout the gardens, popular arrangements will mingle with ones never seen before.

You can find everything you need to know about Asheville’s Brightest Holiday Tradition at the tabs above, and be sure to secure your tickets now by clicking the “Purchase Tickets” button.

We hope you will join us this holiday season!


Winter Lights is the Arboretum’s largest annual fundraiser, and supports many parts of its mission driven programming.


Designed with an artistic aesthetic, Winter Lights features beautifully lit displays and glowing landscapes nestled along the Arboretum’s woodland edge and garden areas. This year, we return to the traditional walk-through experience, with plenty of new sights and displays as well as some familiar favorites. Celebrate the holiday season with the entire family at Winter Lights.
