Many things have changed for everyone in these unprecedented times and due to the effects of COVID-19, we are unable to offer our annual evening lighting event, Lumagination, in 2021.  We know that this popular event will be missed and we hope to bring it back in 2022 in the safest way possible. ​Gardens After Dark is not intended as a replacement for Lumagination but is simply a new way to experience the Botanical Gardens.
