Two of Descanso Gardens’ favorite events is coming up soon! Tickets will be going on sale for Descanso Gardens’ beloved holiday events, Carved and Enchanted Forest of Light starting September 15th at descansogardens.org. Descanso Garden’s unique take on Halloween, Carved, will occur October 7-31, 2022 and will feature exciting new displays and experiences. Enchanted, everyone’s favorite light show, will be held November 20, 2022-January 8, 2023 with its preview party fundraiser on November 19, 2022.
Carved is a family-friendly event for all ages. For three weeks in October, thousands of carved pumpkins will line the Camellia Forest. This year’s event will be bigger and better than before, with all kinds of new activities and activations. Along with the pumpkins, the ever-popular pumpkin house, hay maze, and holiday-themed food and beverage, guests will enjoy:
● UV “black light” experiences
● Artists sculpting pumpkins
● Special Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) installation at the Amphitheater
