Chaska Winter Lights

Sunday, Dec 4, 2022 at 10:00am


Stroll through the Arboretum gardens decked out in Winter Lights. Enjoy fresh air as you explore outdoor light displays, highlighting flowers, trees and the beauty of nature, on a .75-mile walking route. See the new 16-foot weeping willow tree and walk through the giant apple, which pays tribute to our Horticultural Research Center’s apple research. Roast marshmallows over an open fire at the S’mores Village (s’mores kits for sale); stop by The Eatery at the Arboretum, serving an exciting dinner menu, including kids options; or visit the cash bar on the Oswald Visitor Center balcony for snacks and drinks.

The Arboretum’s Oswald Visitor Center and Snyder Building will also be open and decorated for the season — and we’re delighted to announce the return of our 25-foot Poinsettia Tree, created using more than 500 red, white and pink poinsettias. Finish your holiday shopping in the Gift & Garden Store and hear holiday tunes from local performers from our live Music Series, offered on select nights.

Special theme nights are available for families and photographers as well as date nights for adults and a New Year’s Eve celebration for all ages.
