The mystical and illuminating playground will light up the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden with its immersive and enhanced interactive elements
(Miami, FL - October 18, 2022) - Following a hugely successful run in 2021, The NightGarden, an extraordinary night attraction presented by Kilburn Live in partnership with Fever, will be returning for its fourth iteration to Miami’s Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The experience that features unbelievable surprises at every corner and an impressive roster of new and returning activations will be open to the public starting November 11, 2022. Tickets are now on sale.
“The NightGarden returning to Miami is synonymous with the ushering of the upcoming Holiday Season,” said Mark Manuel, CEO of Kilburn Live. “This smash hit event has become a holiday tradition in the greater Miami area. And now with Fever joining our longstanding partnership with Fairchild Gardens, this year’s event will be bigger than ever and will feature some very magical surprises.”
The NightGarden is a multisensory experience that immerses its visitors in light and sound as they discover the wonders of the night, from secret sunken ponds and hidden fairies to wise talking trees and much more. Through lighting displays, advanced special effects, motion-sensing technology, state-of- the-art outdoor holograms and shadow sculptures, the stunning Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will be transformed into an awe-inspiring multimedia universe.
Inside the experience, visitors can venture across the rainbow-colored pathway of the Orchid Bridge and find this nocturnal wonderland brought to life with spectacular 360-degree illusions and innovative technology. Guests of all ages can partake in various activities such as interacting with ‘Archimedes,’ a wise and dazzling talking tree, marveling at our various sculptural features like the Giant Dandelions, frolicing in a magical snowfall experience, and finally, joining a Fairy Quest using the FairyScope app. In this augmented reality experience, guests will be guided in a quest to find the Fairy Queen’s lost subjects, hidden in various parts of the 83-acre gardens.
“Once again, we are proud to share that this year’s NightGarden will be a magical experience of light and garden," said Nannette Zapata, Chief Operating Officer at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. “We've added new features to NightGarden and will be welcoming the fan favorite, Archie, our talking tree. NightGarden at Fairchild is a wonderful way to enjoy a fun night with family or friends."
Since it first came to the city in 2018, The NightGarden has become a highly anticipated Miami attraction that features everything from interactive landscapes and unique photo-worthy moments to a variety of Miami’s most popular food trucks and spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks, making it a perfect holiday-outing for the entire family. This year for its fourth annual edition, Kilburn Live brings back its original experience in partnership with Fever, the leading live-entertainment discovery platform.
