Moonlight in the Garden

Come see JC Raulston Arboretum in a whole new light on a tour through the garden at night. This is the only time the garden is open at night and the lights bring an entirely new dimension to the amazing space.

With food trucks, bands, and marshmallows to roast this makes an evening of fun (even if there is a light rain). We had a great time touring the space and even being a little familiar with the area it had added dimensions at night that made the adventure foreign.

Moonlight in the Garden is an annual event and it frequently sells out. There are a few nights left and select time slots open. We recommend the event and love that it supports keeping the arboretum open year-round. The collection is amazing day or night and you’ll love the space if it is your first time visiting or just your first time at night.
