It’s back! Highly anticipated, nationally nominated light display in Cbus now open

Are you ready for some holiday magic?

Conservatory Aglow, a light display and immersive experience in the gardens and interior of The Franklin Park Conservatory, is now officially open and ready for you and your family to experience the wonderland of lights.

There will be a life-sized gingerbread house, a holiday train display, thousands of twinkling lights, and even an ice rink this year.

The Conservatory Aglow is a big deal here in Columbus. Back in 2021, it was up for nomination by USA Today as “Best Botanical Garden Holiday Lights.” And for a good reason. The captivating displays have lights that are synchronized with holiday melodies, plus immersive light installations, outdoor games, dancing, and festive igloos with games inside of them.


The ice rink operates December 1-14, 5pm to close, with the cost included in the Conservatory Aglow tickets, and the Aglow experience ends on January 7th. It runs 5-9pm nightly, and then in December, 5-10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Franklin Park Conservatory is located at 1777 E. Broad St. You can purchase tickets here!

Please note: The Conservatory will be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In addition, Conservatory Aglow will be closed on December 7th for an adults-only Cocktails at the Conservatory event; No one under the age of 21 will be permitted entry after 5pm on December 7th.
