Price: $10 for 12 and older; $5 for GAA members; Free for children under 12 

Sign up today.

Bring the whole family to enjoy a festive evening at the N.C. Botanical Garden’s Winter in the Garden Holiday Festival. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the season, and enjoy the peaceful holiday splendor of the garden as we celebrate the end of the year with lights, holiday music, food for purchase, kids’ crafts and good cheer. Plus, from 5-8 p.m. you’ll be able to take pictures with holiday Rameses Jr. 

Please note, if you purchase tickets through the GAA you will not be assigned a timed entry. GAA tickets are available anytime during the Winter in the Garden Holiday Festival. 

GAA members who attend at least four Triangle Fall Series events get their choice between a very Carolina duffle or pair of campfire mugs.

All sales are final; tickets are not refundable. Need help modifying your fall outreach registration? See below.

Don’t forget to post a photo on social media during this event – tag @UNCGAA and #UNCAlumni.

New: $5 Processing Fee

Starting with the 2019 fall outreach series, there is a one-time $5 processing fee per participant. You will only have to pay this fee once if you are registering for multiple events. For example, register for this event today, pay the $5, come back and register for any other fall outreach events between now and December, and you don’t pay the $5 again.

This change is due to a move to a new registration platform, which we hope will make the registration process smoother, including you being able to change and update your own registrations, even in your pajamas. If you have any questions or concerns, please email
