Nights of a Thousand Candles lights up Brookgreen Gardens this holiday season

One of the most beloved events of the season—and possibly all year—will be back for the holidays in 2020! Nights of a Thousand Candles, held at Brookgreen Gardens, transforms the already amazing venue into a wonderland. The gardens will come to life amid the soft glow of over 2,700 hand-lit candles, as well as countless sparkling lights. You can stroll the garden pathways with a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa to take in the beauty. The evenings will feature the sounds of holiday music, and Bruce Munro’s Field of Light will also be on display.  

Twelve additional nights have been added to this year’s event. Each night will only have half the amount of tickets available for sale as compared to previous years. This way guests can enjoy the event safely, with social distancing and crowd control best practices in mind. 

Tickets must be purchased before arrival and space is limited. Tickets are non-refundable, but in case of bad weather or change of plans, they can be exchanged for another night based on availability by calling (843) 271-3410 by 3 p.m. on the day before the event of your current ticket. Tickets are $25 for adults ($20 for members) and $15 for children ($10 for members). Come enjoy the spirit of the season with family and friends in a safe way with Nights of a Thousand Candles. Happy holidays!
