WildWoods: AGLOW

Select Evenings: Nov. 17, 2022 - March 5, 2023*

Journey into the magnificent, sometimes hidden worlds of nature in Fernbank's outdoor, nighttime experience, WildWoods: AGLOW.

Inspired by the native flora and fauna that thrive in the 10 acres of featured woodlands, and unlike anything else in Atlanta, this multi-sensory experience reveals the wonder of nature and wildlife through an immersive blend of the real environment and glowing displays.

Using captivating illumination, immersive projections and an original musical composition to curate an innovative approach to storytelling, WildWoods: AGLOW beckons guests into a nighttime wonderland of biodiversity that inspires awe and curiosity for guests of all ages. See roots magically spread into towering trees, witness oversized seeds emanate with interactive light, behold nocturnal animals that come alive in the night, engage with larger-than-life glowing mushrooms and more.


WildWoods: AGLOW + Fernbank After Dark tickets (ages 21+ only) are available on the Fernbank After Dark page.
