Illumination: Tree Lights At The Morton Arboretum

Illumination will engage your senses with dazzling projections, trees that respond to your touch and sound, and vivid, electric colors throughout. 

Plan Your Experience:

Illumination is an outdoor event on a one-mile, gently rolling, paved path that takes approximately one and one-half hours to complete. Please dress for the weather. Food and beverage concessions are available for purchase. 
Walking along the paved trail you can:
  • Hug a tree to make it grow brighter
  • Sing to a tree and watch it change color
  • Interact with light and color with a swipe of your hand
  • And many more surprising experiences around every turn! 

Also be sure to:
  • Warm up next to fire pits while enjoying hot cocoa, s’mores, and other delights
  • Visit the Enchanted Railroad and stop in to browse the holiday wares at The Arboretum Store
  • Enjoy energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly LED lighting that provides beautiful, powerful color while consuming only half the power of traditional incandescent lights
