Festival of Lights
November 11-December 30, 2021
4-10 p.m. | Wednesday-Sunday


Head to Powell Gardens for the fifth annual Festival of Lights (November 11-December 30), illuminated by Evergy. This family-favorite festival is a breath of fresh air during a hectic holiday season. Bundle up and wander a lighted outdoor path featuring immersive, botanically-inspired installations that celebrate the natural joy of the most festive season. More than 20 miles of lights highlight the natural forms of Powell Gardens’ tree collection, show off the exceptional architecture and landscape elements in the Gardens, and create paths through Instagram and holiday card-worthy photo moments.

A newly imagined Enchanted Tiki Bar occupies the glass domed conservatory, while a new warming station along the trail sells spiked or non-alcoholic hot chocolate and Louisburg cider. Take your drinks to go and snap a selfie in a larger-than-life snow globe or Magic Tree wrapped in 3.5 miles of lights before enjoying the display from above atop the Missouri Barn Silo.  Visit Santa’s reindeer (Saturdays, Nov. 27-Dec. 18) before venturing to the Children’s Garden to deliver your holiday wish list to Santa, then return to the Visitor Center to shop for local and garden inspired gifts for friends and family in The Marketplace at Powell Gardens.

This year, begin a new family tradition. Festival of Lights is open Wednesday-Sunday, 4-10 p.m. Additional days (December 20-22 & 27-29) have been added to accommodate seasonal holidays.
