Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, at 6500 South New Hope Road, Belmont, is worth the short drive from Charlotte, especially during the Christmas season.
Holidays at the Garden is returning to the Garden, from November 28th, 2020, to January 3rd, 2021, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday.
Sing along to your wintertime favorites at the popular topiary display, take in the rolling lights of the Piedmont Prairie and stroll among the blossoming cherry trees. Grab a bite from the food trucks, roast a marshmallow beside a roaring fire, sip a warm or cold beverage and soak up the season’s cheer.
The light display is beautiful. It is integrated into the garden, and makes the fountains, trees and landscape magical.
Advance tickets will be available for 5, 6:30 and 8 p.m. arrival times.
Guests with 5 and 6:30 p.m. arrival times can arrive up to 90 minutes after the time on their ticket but cannot be admitted prior to the time on their ticket. Guests with 8 p.m. arrival times are encouraged to arrive promptly to enjoy the show.
There will not be live entertainment or visits from Santa this year. The popular Orchid Tree, featuring more than 300 live orchids, will be on display, but the Orchid Conservatory and Lost Hollow the Children’s Garden will remain closed.
