A Festival of Lights

Be dazzled at the 13th annual Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens Festival of Lights. Each year the show is 100% original and lovingly handmade by the MCBG staff and volunteers who care for this 47 acre treasure. The gift shop will be open and there will be hot cocoa, apple cider, and treats to make the light-tastic visit extra sweet. The event takes place rain or shine every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from November 24 through December 17. The doors open at 5 p.m. and the last entry is at 7 p.m. If you want to take photos with Santa and supply him with your wish list, make sure to visit on November 26, December 3, or December 10. Adult tickets are $10 and anyone under the age of 16 enters for free. Purchase tickets and find more information at
