Summer Light: Art by Night at Brookgreen Gardens: A Perfect Summer Evening

By Haley Brandon

Summer Light: Art by Night is a chance to see Brookgreen Gardens in a whole new way. As the sun sets, the historic landscape comes alive with beautiful displays of light installations, creating a mesmerizing experience that is the perfect way to spend a summer evening.

Walking through the sculpture garden, you’ll be captivated by its beauty after dark. The gardens, already full of natural beauty and artistic sculptures, turn into a glowing wonderland. Each light display is carefully designed to illuminate the gardens in a special way. From the lights and sounds in Oak Allee and Beyond the Garden Wall to the dazzling Conway Glass display, everything looks stunning.

The creativity and innovation shine through in every corner. Moroccan lanterns, colorful globe lights, upcycled wine bottles, and more hang from the trees, giving off a soft, warm glow that illuminates the gardens. Live music adds to the charm, with different bands playing every Wednesday and Saturday night until August 24th. The music fills the air and makes the gardens feel even more magical.

If you get hungry, there are a variety of food and drink options available. Austin’s Harvest Restaurant is open for dinner and offers a great dining experience. Reservations are recommended, and you’ll need a ticket to Summer Light to eat there. Old Kitchen will also have snacks and refreshments, so you can grab something to eat or drink as you explore.

The gardens close for regular admission at 5 p.m. and reopen at 6 p.m. for Summer Light. You’ll need a separate ticket for the evening event, but there’s a discount if you buy tickets for both day and evening simultaneously.

In essence, Summer Light: Art by Night at Brookgreen Gardens is an experience that makes summer evenings special. It celebrates art, nature, and light, offering a perfect night out for you and your family. Whether you’re strolling through the illuminated paths, enjoying live music, or tasting delicious food, every moment spent at Brookgreen Gardens under the summer night sky is one to remember.

The event runs from 6-10 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday until August 24th, ensuring ample opportunities to enjoy an escape into a world of beauty and wonder this summer.
