Autumn Lights Festival

October 16-18, 2020

The festive evenings blend live music, illuminated art, fire dancers, food and libations to make one unforgettable experience.

This year, the annual tradition goes virtual with three nights of FREE presentations. This 9th annual benefit for the nonprofit Friends of the Gardens at Lake Merritt will showcase illuminated art along with an in depth conversation with some of the artists about their inspiration and the creation process. This year's virtual event comes to life through video, demos and live chat, treating you to an exciting, behind-the-scenes experience with the artists of the Autumn Lights Festival. Join the fun!
