    We are sad to announce that Christmas in the Garden has been postponed until 2021 based on concerns regarding COVID-19 and guest safety. HOWEVER, we are excited to offer a new, limited and intimate light display, Lights at the Oregon Garden Resort.

    The lights will surround the Resort’s main lodge, including many favorite displays from Christmas in the Garden, and will be available only for guests staying at the Resort. We will also have live holiday music, cozy fire pits, festive food and drink and more to safely celebrate the holidays, social distance style.

    We hope you'll join us! For more information and to book your overnight stay, visit: https://christmasinthegarden.com/
