The Garden’s popular after-hours event returns with new activities in celebration of Alice’s Wonderland Returns. Every Thursday through Sept. 12, 5 – 9 p.m., purchase specialty cocktails, treasure hunt for Cheshire Cat, enjoy live music, discovery stations, lawn games and more while exploring the exhibition dramatically lighted at night.

  • When you arrive, take a pic at the tipsy photo op and purchase a specialty themed cocktail
  • Begin the Wonderland Scavenger Hunt in the Visitor Center: Grab a pencil and clue sheet from the Visitor Center, and start your search for nine Cheshire Cats scattered around the Garden. It’s a curious way to be sure you see everything the Garden has to offer. Solve the riddle, then turn in your completed hunt to the Gift Shop for 20% off your purchase and a chance to win a drawing for a Garden Lights prize package!
  • Stroll around the Canopy Walk while a curated playlist enhances the vibe.
  • Learn about the Garden’s most iconic mosaiculture sculpture at the Earth Goddess Discovery Station staffed by Garden volunteers
  • Spot Cheshire Cat on Alston Overlook, then head toward Alice, who’s spinning down the rabbit hole by the Great Lawn, where you can try your hand at corn hole, Jenga and Connect Four.
  • Browse the Artist Market in Cox Courtyard featuring garden-themed local vendors offering honey, jams, jewelry, blown glass, soaps, fascinators, plants and more!
  • Beware of the Queen of Hearts as you head toward the Singing Flowers and Skyline Garden, where a real-life Alice takes photos with guests in front of the Chess Set 6 – 7 p.m. and 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
  • Listen out for live music at various locations throughout the season
  • Purchase food and beverage from Garden bars, Longleaf Restaurant and the Snack Bar
