December Nights & Holiday Lights 2014 Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens Savannah

CGBG is a tobacco-free University of Georgia property. No smoking, chewing tobacco or e-cigarettes allowed outdoors or in buildings. No pets allowed at December Nights & Holiday Lights.

December Nights & Holiday Lights encompasses at least six acres from the new Visitor’s Center to our Rose Garden, Orchid House, Crapemyrtle Allee, White Garden and beyond! Note: Rain will cause illuminated displays to fail, so there may be cancellations or early closings based on the weather forecast. It’s best to come out during a stretch of fair weather rather than wait until the last few nights (the last two years rain prompted closures on Christmas Eve).

The majority of the Holiday Lights experience is stroller and wheelchair friendly (there are two lawn areas illuminated). For the enjoyment and safety of all around the illuminated displays, please no flash photography.

Spirited music also fills the air, sometimes with live performances by local vocal or instrumental groups in the Great Hall of the Visitors Center. Visit with Santa Claus and take photos on Saturday evenings and even Mrs. Claus will stop by to lead a storytime for kids on select evenings.

Stop by Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen for sweet snacks. Local 4-H groups or other non-profits will have goodies and hot drinks for purchase (and all proceeds go to their various programs).
