To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens will also be taking certain safety measures for the event. Nightly capacity within the gardens has been reduced. Masks are required indoors for all guests over two years old and strongly recommended outdoors when social distancing is not possible. Many of the garden pathways have also been designated for one-way traffic.

Hand sanitation stations have been placed throughout the garden. No tickets will be sold on-site, so visitors will have to purchase tickets online ahead of time.
