Nights of a Thousand Candles

December 1-3, 8-10, & 15-18, 2016

See Brookgreen Gardens come to life amid the soft glow of more than 5,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights from 3 - 10 p.m. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, hear the sounds of hand bells ringing, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends.

Nights of a Thousand Candles continues to delight guests with beautiful candle and lighting displays and exceptional entertainment. The 80-foot-tall fir tree decorated with 70,000 lights will be lighted in ceremonial fashion at 5:45 p.m. every night.

An outdoor glass sculpture exhibit will be on display in Anne's Garden. Created by Conway Glass, guests will see glass reeds 24 - 40” tall and glass orbs 3 -10” illuminated with LED lights and fiber optic cable in earth tones of green, amber, blue, brown, and white. Also on view, will be a glowing Tree of Glass made from transparent glass pieces inserted into the brick wall and a large Crepe Myrtle will be decorated with white ornaments hanging from its branches.

Check back soon for the entertainment schedule, new app, ticket information, and dining options.
