This November, 50 acres of vibrant LED lights will once again transform The Morton Arboretum’s treescape into a winter wonderland of color and nature, as Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum returns for its second year.
Hailed as a “must-see event” by the media in its debut season, Illumination brings lights and nature together to transform a wintertime walk in the woods into an awe-inspiring experience. 


From Nov. 21, 2014 – Jan. 3, 2015, walk a mile-long path to marvel at trees illuminated in colors like electric blue, hot pink and neon green and interact with lighted trees that respond to voice or touch.
On the Illumination trail, sing to trees to make them change color and hug trees to see how they respond, then warm up at one of our toasty fire pits. Or stop at the warming tent to grab a snack and a warm beverage.

Illumination’s 2014 season offers new features and activities for the whole family. Come out to see:
  • Symphony Woods: Enchanting lights dance in synchronized patterns to seasonal music from the renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
  • Meadow Lake Magic:  Light-patterned trees and a series of lit orbs dotting Meadow Lake create a visually entrancing experience.
  • The popular Tinsel Colonnade will be expanded in 2014 to double its size, as cascades of multi-colored strings of LED lights hanging from the trees like tinsel.
  • More kid-friendly features:  2014’s event incorporates child-friendly elements to engage the whole family, including simpler interactive stations and a scavenger hunt to find the “Glow Man” hidden along the Illumination path for a special prize.
  • More live entertainment: Catch top local bands every weekend during Illumination. Check the Illumination website for the latest schedule.
“We’re thrilled to bring Illumination back for its second year, following a successful debut season,” said Sue Wagner, vice president of education and information at The Morton Arboretum. “This year’s event offers the best of our 2013 season, along with surprising and engaging new activities and experiences for all ages.”  

Built in partnership with top experiential lighting designers Lightswitch, Illumination at The Morton Arboretum features energy-efficient, eco-friendly LED lighting.
