Nights of a Thousand Candles

Festival Details - "Nights of a Thousand Candles"...

Start: Friday, November 27, 2020 4:00PM
End: TBD

See Brookgreen Gardens come to life amid the soft glow of more than 2,700 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights.  From 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. walk the garden pathways with a warm cup of cider, cocoa, or wine. Hear the sounds of holiday music, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends!

We have added 12 additional nights to our annual event for safety, social distancing, and crowd control. We will have half the amount of tickets available each night compared to previous years. 

Optional Add-on:  Sparkle and Fun includes a glass of sparkling wine or cider and holographic glasses that will make the lights even more festive.  Your Sparkle & Fun Package will be available at Keepsakes, the Museum store upon your arrival.  Availability only guaranteed if purchased in advance.

Named "Best Christmas Lights in South Carolina" by Travel+Leisure Magazine
