The Big Deal: Holiday At The Dallas Arboretum And Botanical Garden

by Amy Roh 14 Nov 2018 2:00 AM

Holiday at the Arboretum returns to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. On display is The 12 Days of Christmas outdoor exhibit, as well as 500,000 lights throughout the garden at night, trimming the architecture of the historic homes and lighting the canopies overhead—including a 30-foot-tall tree at the center of the property.

The exhibition “The Artistry of the Nativity” in the historic DeGolyer House features 500 crèches from over 50 countries representing many cultures from around the world. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to see these crèches as they have never been on public display before. Each of the 500 crèches is made out of unique materials including cork, Waterford crystal, horns, seeds, corn husk, glass, adobe, paper-mache, wood and coconut shells. In addition to the crèches, every room in the DeGolyer House will be elaborately decorated in holiday décor.

Enter this Big Deal and treat your family to Holiday at the Arboretum with four admission passes, valid 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., through December 31, 2108. Does not include parking.
