SF’s Epic New “Night Bloom” Light Show | Conservatory of Flowers

Monday, December 24, 2018 - 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm | Cost: FREE*
*Free to watch from outside the building

San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers | 100 John F. Kennedy Dr., San Francisco, CA


Light up the season with Night Bloom, a five-week light and sound exhibition.

Light and sound will transform the iconic San Francisco landmark into a glowing landscape of interactive experiences this holiday season.

Although paid tickets are required for going inside the Conservatory of Flowers, the outside glow and light show should still be spectacular and Instagram worthy. The light show takes place on the exterior of the building, many evenings from November 30th through January 6th. Check the schedule for updates.
