About The Event

Experience the Celebration of Nature and Wonder this Holiday Season at the Columbus Botanical Garden. With hundreds of thousands of lights aglow, Shine is an event for children and adults alike. This year Shine will inspire attendees to make an impact on the world around them and encourage them to improve the lives of others through simple acts of kindness. While encouraging others to “SHINE”, The Columbus Botanical Garden invites you to join us as we celebrate the magic of the holiday season, the beauty that surrounds us and the joy of giving.

Embrace the outdoors as you take a stroll through the Walk of Stars, where each star purchased remembers, celebrates, or honors a loved one or moment in time. Have your picture made with Santa in his Victorian sleigh and make your way to holiday story time. Get warm while roasting s’mores over the open fire in fire pits provided by W.C. Bradley. Each night will have a different line-up of family-friendly music and entertainment groups, nature-inspired arts and crafts for the kids, and more activities for the whole family!

The Holiday Market Gift Shop will be open each evening full of items to help celebrate and commemorate your visit. Holiday refreshments will be provided by Kimble's.
