The Candlelight Stroll is a unique opportunity for adults to enjoy the quiet and serenity of the Arboretum after dark.

Leave the kids at home! The Candlelight Stroll is for those looking for a quieter Luminary Walk that still features the glow of candles through the woods, dazzling light displays, live musical performances and the enchanting gnome houses, all without children. It's the ideal wintry date night – or "friends night out" – much more peaceful than the exuberant family-fun atmosphere of the traditional Friday and Saturday night Luminary Walks.  In addition, Embrace the Grape will sell wine and hot adult beverages to enhance your leisurely walk through the magical gardens (must be 21 to purchase alcohol). This “Date Night” version of the Luminary Walk will truly be an adults-only event.  Children under 18 will not be admitted. We invite those with kiddos to attend the traditional Luminary Walk with Santa and the excitement of a family-oriented holiday event.
