At Illumination, you can experience the trees at The Morton Arboretum in a way unlike any you’ve seen before, creating the ultimate nature-focused holiday celebration.

Holiday trees are a classic sign of the season, so the Morton Arboretum’s holiday efforts fit well with winter festivities. From late November through the start of January, the Arboretum features Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum, where vivid colors, eye-catching lights, and a curated soundtrack unite to create the ultimate winter wonderland. 

Unlike other light displays, this exhibition seeks to highlight the trees themselves, enhancing their natural beauty with the addition of lights and sound. This year, Illumination is a drive-through experience, with a dedicated radio station providing the soundtrack to your light-bright adventure. Adjust your car’s heat or bring along a blanket and mug of warm cocoa to enhance the festive scene—otherwise, they’ve set the stage for a truly seasonal display. 

By showcasing the natural beauty of the trees with this event, the Arboretum is able to raise funds for their mission while maintaining the trees and the wildlife that coexist with them. Their team works to respect the nature that surrounds the display, with minimal impact as a result of Illumination.
