Summer Lights is a brand new exhibition that will illuminate DSBG with stunning seasonal displays. Beginning in early July, guests can view thousands of stellar lights, from disco balls to highlighted root systems. This fun display not only provides relief from the summer heat, but also a nature focused immersive experience for all ages. As the sun sets, the garden will transform into a mesmerizing spectacle, with shimmering, glowing, and sparkling lights all around. Rain or shine event.

At about 8:40pm, when the sun goes down the lights really shine. Before that, explore the Perennial Garden, grab a drink at the bar, or take advantage of our Summer Sale in the Garden Store.
