Holiday Light Show

In 2017, our show was bigger, better and more beautiful than ever, as the wintery garden paths were brought to life with over 425,000 lights. The show also featured 100 beautifully decorated trees, 2,500 luminaries, and 600 dangling icicle lights hung from the tallest trees in the Garden and more.

In addition to being a beloved community and regional event, the HLS serves as a major fundraiser for RBG and creates significant economic impact to the Janesville area. We welcomed over 46,000 visitors during the 2017 Holiday Light Show, which ran for a total of 21 nights.

The Holiday Light Show is a magical family-friendly event, as well as a breathtaking backdrop for any wedding, reception, holiday party, or corporate function.
