Moonlight in the Garden
For the first time in over a decade, the JC Raulston Arboretum will open its gates after dark in early November for a crisp autumn stroll. Luminaries will light the way for Arboretum visitors to explore this one of a kind artistic lighting display custom designed by Southern Lights of Raleigh, Inc.
Live entertainment, food trucks, fire pits, and marshmallows will top off a wonderful evening spent with family and friends.
Tickets each night are limited so reserve a spot early to make sure you don't miss the show.
Pedestrian Gate Access
The JC Raulston Arboretum's pedestrian entrance will be closed July 18 through the fall as we install a new gate and paths. The parking lot gate will remain accessible and will be open every day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
