ABOUT THE DISPLAY
Garden d’Lights is produced by Bellevue Botanical Garden Society in partnership with Bellevue Parks & Community Services.
HOW IT HAPPENS
Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into another fantastic light show. Many, many thanks to all of you who have helped and are still helping!

Our display gets better every year and we rely on our visitors for their continued support. Please consider a donation to support Garden d’Lights either at the Garden or online.
This year, we will be scheduling musical groups to perform during Garden d’Lights. Performances can be instrumental or vocal, and should be 30-45 minutes long. Groups should consist of 25 or fewer musicians. Performances must be offered free of charge, and soliciting of donations is not permitted. However, you may distribute information about your group. If you are interested in performing during the 2017 Garden d’Lights, please contact us for more information.
About the Bellevue Botanical Garden
The Bellevue Botanical Garden opened in 1992 and hosts 300,000 guests per year. If you are a serious gardener, a beginning home gardener, or casual visitor, the Bellevue Botanical Garden will be a special treat. No matter the season, the Bellevue Botanical Garden’s fifty-three acres offer visitors an interesting garden experience. Beautifully cultivated gardens, including the ever-changing Perennial Border, lead to meadows, and later a ravine, lush with native growth. There is something here for everyone.

Bellevue Botanical Garden Society
The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society was instrumental in helping to create the Bellevue Botanical Garden. The Society is a non-profit organization established in 1985 in partnership with the City of Bellevue Parks Department. It is managed by a Board of Directors, and supported by a small staff based at the Garden, as well as a cadre of volunteers. Operating funds are raised through membership dues, fund-raising events, and donations. The Society also seeks funding through grants.
The Society offers a horticulturally relevant class and lecture series at the Garden, and also funds the Living Lab Program, which educates over 2,300 students annually with a science curriculum coordinated with the Bellevue School District. In 2015, the Society added a preschool program, Kids in the Garden, to introduce science discovery to 3- to 5-year olds. The Society also hosts a multitude of popular Garden events such as the Mother’s Day Social, Vintage Sale, Arts in the Garden, and Garden d’Lights.
The Society’s mission is to perpetuate and further enhance the Bellevue Botanical Garden as a learning resource in partnership with the City of Bellevue.
