Old Westbury Gardens’ Shimmering Solstice, which offers visitors a walkthrough display of holiday lights, sights and sounds, returns Nov. 25.
The Old Westbury Gardens, at 71 Old Westbury Road in Old Westbury, will be the setting for the enchanted light displays and festive music. Show dates are between Nov. 25 and Jan. 1, 2023.
Created by Lightswitch, a collective of well-known lighting, media and visual designers, the show offers stunning visuals.
New for this year includes a redesigned interactive area with three new exhibits; seasonal music throughout the expanded illuminated event path; a new illuminated water feature on the West Pond; an updated Westbury House finale show; and The Garden of Appreciation will be transformed into a warming area with a concession stand for seasonal snacks and drinks.
The world-famous Walled Garden, Rose Garden, South Lawn and Allée are a few of the pathways that one can travel on. They will present the finale for this year on the south face of Westbury House.
The exhibition will be open from Nov. 25 to 27; from Dec. 3–4, 9–11, 16–19, 21–23 and 26–31; and Jan. 1. Tickets are not available at the event — one must buy them beforehand.
