The Southern Lights is our inaugural light show experience that invites people to walk and experience The Gardens of SENC in lights!
We've partnered with Patriot Illumination to create a one-of-a-kind holiday light experience which includes your favorite holiday characters!
Grab a beer, glass of wine or a specialty cocktail from our bar before you set out to experience the magic!
Touring the beautiful Gardens wouldn't be complete without a delicious flat-bread pizza from our very own wood-fired oven!
If you prefer sweet over savory, grab a s'more and toast your marshmallows by our fire pits!
Each night brings new excitement! Stay tuned for future announcements on special guest appearances from Santa and his friends!
Come hang out and listen to a great performance from various artists. Stay tuned for future announcements on musical guest lineups!

Our hope in hosting The Southern Lights is to create moments of wonder for each guest. Lights create a sense of awe, regardless of age. As every person walks into the light show, whether they are pausing underneath the radiating mature native hardwood trees, dreaming from the endless twinkles of blues, greens and reds, or watching children gape in awe at the 17 foot Christmas Tree with “Merry Christmas” dazzling beside it, we believe that every person will experience The Southern Lights with a smile on their face and a lasting memory.
To make The Southern Lights happen, The Gardens have partnered with Patriot Illumination, a Veteran owned family business that specializes in Christmas lights. Patriot Illumination has custom designed The Southern Lights to be a special, one-of-a-kind light show for The Gardens that will run every weekend after Thanksgiving and into the first of the New Year. The Southern Lights will embody the excitement and wonder of the Christmas season that will captivate people of all ages.
One final thought is that lights transform you; they take you somewhere. A light show is something you don’t forget. It has the power to make you feel small, yet courageous; be caught in mystery, yet also allowing yourself to trust. Lights are special.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours to take in all the beauty that the Gardens has to offer!
