November 24th - December 30th, 2023

5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Don't miss Illuminations at Botanica, the brightest place in Kansas this holiday season! Our annual Illuminations event will take place every night from November 24th - December 30th from 5:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Having been voted Top 10 Best Light Show in the country, it is the perfect way to create lasting memories and new traditions with friends and loved ones. With over two million lights, we've incorporated several magical light displays for this year, including our 62-foot Christmas tree that’s programmed with festive images and set to holiday music and our new Candyland walk through with a lit storybook gingerbread house and candy all aglow. You won’t want to miss a minute of this spectacular show!

All the favorite Illuminations features will still be viewable including displays such as the Funky Tree, the Meadow Show choreographed to music, and so many more. Before the night is through, don't forget to take a ride on the Khicha Family Carousel for only $3 and visit Santa with your child’s wish list. Hot cocoa, snacks and beverages will be available for purchase at Botanica's concession stand. Adult drinks will be offered for purchase by Bar on Demand as well.

Admission to Illuminations is $16 for non-member adults, $13 for member adults and military, $10 ages 3-12 and free for children 2 and under. Tickets must be purchased prior to the event online and walk-in tickets will not be available or accepted. If your family doesn't like crowds, then weeknights are a great time to visit.
