Autumn at the Arboretum

September 18–October 31

The 16th annual Autumn at the Arboretum, presented by Reliant, is upon us and we are excited to once again share 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash, hailing from the pumpkin capital of Texas, Floydada, throughout the garden. This year, the space is transformed into Bugtopia! Our signature display will come alive with larger-than-life insect topiaries, fascinatingly bugged-out pumpkin houses, and, of course, a maze for younger visitors.

Christmas Village

Holiday at the Arboretum

November 10–December 31

Holiday at the Arboretum, presented by Reliant, is Dallas’ favorite holiday tradition! Stroll the garden to see the 25-foot-tall elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos that represent each of the 12 Days of Christmas. In the evenings, the garden comes to life for a beautiful nighttime experience aglow with over one million lights. Enjoy our Christmas Village, visits with Santa Claus, entertainment, shopping, food & beverage options and the NEW 50-foot tall Dazzling Musical Tree with 42,000 lights and holiday tunes.
