Illumination: Summer of Love Light Art in the Park | Golden Gate Park

Flowers power the night this summer as the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park becomes the canvas for an elegant light art installation to honor San Francisco’s city-wide celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.

Originally scheduled to end on October 21st, “Photosynthesis” has been extended through November 26, 2017.

But don’t worry, there’s a brand new winter light show scheduled to kick off December 7, 2017, and run into 2018.

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love on the first official night of summer with the grand opening of a new light art installation that will make the Conservatory of Flowers look like it dropped acid, turning the all-white structure into a canvas of elegantly illuminated scenes every night through October.

Plus, for the launch on June 21st, they will be having a very special free Surrealistic Summer Solstice jam from 6-10 pm to accompany the lighting, revisiting the iconic songs of the late 1960s with over 40 legendary musicians.

The flower-powered celebration is free and open to all ages. It begins on John F. Kennedy Drive in front of the Conservatory at 6 pm at the main stage. A variety of food trucks from Off the Grid will be available as well, and the Conservatory is encouraging attendees to wear tie-dye to evoke the late ’60s.

At approximately 9:15 pm, all eyes will be on the Conservatory for the Grand Lighting
