Thank you for joining us for Gardens Aglow 2016!
Gardens Aglow has ended for the winter, and our whole team is hard at work getting ready to open our doors again in May with new avenues for learning, discovery and inspiration. We look forward to seeing you again during our regular 2017 season, May 1 through October.
See the Gardens in a whole new light!
Join us this winter for the biggest and brightest light display in Maine! This year, over 360,000 energy efficient LED lights decorate our central gardens and buildings. That’s right – the largest light display in Maine just got larger! From the lights, to the s’mores pit, food trucks and special art exhibits, Gardens Aglow has something for the whole family. Join us from November 18 through December 31 to experience the magic.
