Enjoy an illuminated fall evening of festive enchantment during the return of the popular Glow in the Garden at VanDusen Botanical Garden in the heart of Vancouver.

For 2019, Glow in the Garden will feature an expanded event area, new on-site food vendors, and a new timed ticket system – you’ll be asked to indicate if you’d like to arrive between 5-6 p.m., 6:30-7:30 p.m., or 8-9 p.m.

Each year, VanDusen Glow in the Garden features a themed light show that includes unique features and magical moments, perfect for getting you in the Halloween spirit. This October you’ll be off on a your journey to help Anna the hummingbird and her friends lift the “hootenanny” glowing spell cast over the garden by a tricky old owl, collecting treats along your way.
