Tip: When you arrive at the Arboretum with your pre-purchased QR code, go straight to the white tent at either of the entrances.
Weather Cancellation Policy:
If we can’t light the candles, we can’t have the Luminary Walk. So rain or blizzard are about the only reasons we would cancel a night. We will still go forward in light snow or cold temperatures. The decision to cancel the Holiday Luminary Walk due to inclement weather will be made by 1:00 pm and sent to online ticket buyers via email, posted on our website and announced on social media. Once the decision to cancel the event is made, the decision is final.
Tickets for a cancelled evening can be exchanged for any other date with availability by calling the Arboretum at 913.685.3604 during operating hours 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. daily. Tickets are not refundable otherwise.
We understand that you have made plans to attend the Walk and appreciate your support of the Arboretum. We thank you in advance for understanding that the decision to cancel this event due to rain is not one we take lightly.
TIP: The colder or damp evenings are the best time to come to the Luminary – there are fewer people then.
