From family photos against the stunning backdrop of the conservatory to a little fun with Santa and Mrs. Claus, it's easy to create memorable moments during the holiday season at Powell Gardens.
Holiday Cheer Conservatory Exhibit
Fill yourself with holiday cheer when you step inside the conservatory where poinsettias in an array of festive colors are on display! Bring your camera--this is the perfect setting for photos with family and friends. The exhibit is open daily (except Christmas and New Year's Day) through January 3, 2016.
The Marjorie Powell Allen Chapel is an extraordinary venue in which to enjoy seasonal music. The 2015 series features performances by Molly Hammer on Saturday, December 12, and Central Standard Men's A Cappella Ensemble on Sunday, December 13.

For two magical nights (5-7:30 p.m. December 12 and 13, 2015) experience Powell Gardens aglow with the soft light of hundreds of luminaria. Enjoy live music in the grand hall of the Visitor Center and then stroll the candlelit path to the Marjorie Powell Allen Chapel for another festive performance. Learn more here.
Home for the Holidays
