La Cañada Flintridge, CA, August 8, 2018 – Descanso Gardens is excited to announce that tickets to its enormously popular light show, Enchanted: Forest of Light, will go on sale on Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. Enchanted will run from Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018 to Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019. Tickets to Enchanted have timed entry and must be purchased in advance at enchantedLA.com.
Enchanted is a gentle one-mile walk through Descanso highlighting the most beloved areas of the Gardens. There are a variety of large-scale light displays, many of which are interactive, allowing visitors to manipulate the lights and sounds. New expansions and enhancements will be made to popular displays such as “Celestial Shadows” by HYBYCOZO, the spinning polyhedral installations that explore geometry through light, shadow, and perception, as well as the “Lightwave Lake” light show at Descanso’s lake. Visitors can enjoy Jen Lewin’s popular flowing and glowing interactive landscape of meandering pathways, “Aqueous,” from new neon benches placed around the Main Lawn.
Enchanted will also feature new dining options in the Courtyard and a whiskey bar overlooking the “Lightwave Lake.” Maple, Descanso Gardens’ restaurant, will be open nightly exclusively for Enchanted ticket holders.
Be the first to experience Enchanted: Forest of Light at the 2018-19 Preview Party Nov. 17. For this one special night your magical ticket includes Golden Road Brewing beers, Cardinal Rule wines and a scrumptious feast from Patina Catering. The Flash Dance DJs will be spinning near the colorful “Aqueous” on the Main Lawn. Tickets are limited and go on sale Sept. 4 for $125.
Tickets for Enchanted will also be available to members in a pre-sale from Oct. 1–14. General admission tickets will go on sale on Oct. 15. Costs are as follows:
