Lightscape Brooklyn Tickets
About Lightscape Brooklyn
Make the holidays merry and bright at Lightscape, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's annual light spectacular. Reimagined for 2023, this unique experience features new light displays alongside iconic favorites from past years.
Feel the heat in the Fire Garden or stay cool in the Winter Cathedral. Bask in the light of Supernova, a 24-foot-tall glittering Moravian star, or dance among the lights of the Chandelier Walk. All these installations and more are on view during your walk on the Lightscape trail, together boasting over a million colorful (and photo op-worthy) lights alongside festive music and plenty of holiday cheer.
The very first Lightscape went up in 2014, at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London. Since then, Lightscape has become a global phenomenon, with installations popping up in gardens all over the U.K. and U.S. Brooklyn hosted Lightscape for the first time in 2021, and the event is now a New York holiday staple.
- Grab some grub. Food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages, are available for purchase at numerous vendors along your walk through Lightscape. Enjoy a seasonal drink or a light bite!
- Experience the beauty of the gardens. One installation in this year's Lightscape incorporates red poppy blossoms into the display. The lights aren't the only gorgeous thing to look at — they're intertwined with the naturally wonderful flowers already there.
- Enjoy a hip-hop holiday. To commemmorate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop's creation in New York City, the playlist at one Lightscape installation, the Kaleido Circle, features songs by influential Brooklyn hip-hop artists.
