Stop by for an evening stroll in our Magical Gardens!

Festival of Lights at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens

Open every evening through Sunday, December 12
4:30 until 7:30 pm
FREE admission!

Join us at the new Festival of Lights where thousands of lights transform Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens into a blossoming winter wonderland.

Bundle up the kids, stroll the Gardens pathways and delight at the beautiful display of holiday lights. Before or after your walk stop by our ‘Holiday Café' for desserts and hot beverages while the kids write a letter to Santa.

The Gardens Store is brimming with unique, high quality gifts at ‘locals prices’.  Browse the Gardens Nursery for Winter treasures and specialty conifers for holiday tabletops.  All of our great gifts will have special Festival-pricing throughout the week. Come! Bring the kids and join the festivities… and take care of all of your holiday shopping.

Our sincerest appreciation goes to:
Artist Jennifer Lorton – creative genius behind the  Festival of Lights image.
Rossi's Building Materials -our lights and equipment sponsor.
Our volunteers & staff for enduring the elements to create Festival of Lights.
We Thank You!
