Ticket Information

Tickets are non-refundable.

Tickets are exchangeable - based on availability. Here's what you need to know before purchasing:

  • Create an account before completing the sale. There will be a prompt to do so.
  • If you wish to exchange after purchasing, log into our ticketing partner's website - https://www.showclix.com/my-tickets/login.
  • Follow the instructions to "swap" your tickets for another date and time of entry.

Purchase tickets online in advance only. No tickets will be sold at the Arboretum.

$15 for Luminary Walk, $16 for Candlelight Stroll and $10 for Electric Glow. No charge for children age 5 and under, although a free ticket must be “purchased” to reserve an entry slot. No children’s tickets will be available for the Adults-Only Candlelight Stroll.

Tickets are date-specific and sold in half-hour entry time frames.

You must enter during the half-hour period following the time on your ticket. (Purchase a 7:00 ticket for entry any time between 7:00 and 7:30, for example.)

No entries allowed after 8:00pm; lights start going out at 9:00pm.

In the event of a cancellation due to rain, tickets may be exchanged for any other date with availability.  Please review the weather cancellation policy below. You must have set up the account on the ticketing site to do this.

Tickets will not be refunded for inclement weather, including but not limited to snow, wind, rain, or cold temperatures. Tickets will not be replaced if lost, stolen, or unused.

All proceeds benefit the Arboretum.

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 Luminary Walk due to inclement weather will be made by 1:00 pm and sent to online ticket buyers via email (be sure you check all your spam, junk, and promotions folders!), 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 returning to the ticketing site.  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!
