About Glow Gardens

Celebrate the Warmth of the Season

Glow Gardens is a holiday festival designed to bring people together to laugh, stroll and play under the twinkle of a million lights. 

‘Christmas Glow’ first launched in 2017 near Vancouver, BC, and has since expanded to visit more than a dozen locations in Canada, the US and Denmark. In 2020, Glow Gardens will be celebrating Christmas in five locations with an abundance of caution, and under the guidance and approvals of local health authorities (Greater Vancouver, BC; Edmonton, AB; Niagara, ON; Halifax, NS; Salt Lake City, UT).
