Lights of Magnolia tickets are now available! The highly anticipated, one of a kind festival, opens November 15th and runs throuh March 15, 2020.

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is, without question, one of the top places to visit in the Lowcountry. It’s popular with both visitors and locals. There are many obvious reasons for this, such as the beautiful gardens, the tranquil landscapes, its historical significance but it doesn’t end there. Magnolia is constantly looking for new ways to enhance the garden experience for their visitors. We are so excited about their most recent announcement!

This November, Magnolia will open at night to guests for the first time ever! And it will be illuminating! They’ve partnered with the Zigong Lantern Group in China to present a Lantern Festival, the first ever at a public garden in North America! We’re talking “hand-made, three-dimensional sculptures” that will be illuminated through out the gardens.

Imagine walking the paths of these historic gardens guided by the soft glow of Chinese lanterns. As you stroll over and around the black cypress ponds and lakes, you’ll see the illuminated lanterns reflected on the water making them appear even larger! What an amazing way to view the gardens in a new light!
