Living in Nashville during the holidays means one thing – visiting Cheekwood Holiday LIGHTS starting this Saturday, November 19 – January 8, 2023. This is hands down a Nashville tradition to be enjoyed by all of the family. Now in its 7th year, you can expect to experience over a million lights including enhanced display. Nashville’s only botanical garden is set to usher us into the holidays in a really magical way and we are excited to share some of the key moments you can expect to experience this year.
Fun for the kids and young at heart
Make sure to visit the “Children’s Wonderland” experience in the Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden—a canopy tree draped in dripping lights and a sparkling chandelier over the Studio Pavilion.

A Holiday Marketplace
