NIGHT ILLUMINATIONS AT BUTCHART GARDENS
JUNE 15 – SEPT 15
As the brilliant light of the sun retires for the day and dusk falls, The Gardens’ other personality takes over. Thousands of lights, of varying intensity and colour, bring a different look. From June 15th through September 15th this nightly transformation into a wonderland of subtle light and shadow is known as Night Illumination.
This is complemented with our nightly Entertainment Shows all through the Summer. Each summer The Gardens complements the sights and scents with a festival of concerts and events. Every summer evening the open air concerts take place on the Concert Lawn stage. Come sit on our benches, or bring your own lawnchair or blanket and sit on the lawn. Imagine, 64 nights of entertainment!
Helpful hint: Walk around the gardens in the late afternoon, grab a bite to eat, enjoy the entertainment, then walk about when the gardens are illuminated. You’ll really appreciate the changes.
Don’t forget to experience our Saturday (during the Summer only) jaw dropping Firework Show!
