Enchanted: Forest of Light is an interactive light display unlike anything else in the Los Angeles area. The magical illumination takes over the Descanso Gardens, a 150-acre (61 ha) botanical garden located in La Cañada Flintridge, Los Angeles County. It features a one-mile walk through with unique lighting in some of the best areas of the park.

On certain days the Forest of Light display features entertainment, for example, special nights with performances by California School of the Arts – San Gabriel Valley and The Flashdance DJs. Live entertainment is also provided during the Preview Paty for those who want to be the first to experience Enchanted Forest of Light before it opens to the general public. Tickets to this event also include all food and drinks.

Enchanted tickets with a dinner reservation at the Maple restaurant in Descanso Gardens are also available. Enchanted: Forest of Light runs from 5:30 to 10 p.m., from late November to early January except for Thanksgiving and Christmas day.

The Descanso Gardens is a quintessential Southern California landscape showcasing specialized botanic collections and fantastic natural beauty. The garden used to belong to the first Spanish governor of California—Corporal Jose Maria Verdugo—as part of a vast 36,000-acre rancho from 1784 to 1869.
