From the day after Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, the Rediscovery Forest at the Oregon Garden in Silverton transforms into a European-style holiday wonderland called “Christmas in the Garden”. Stroll trails decorated in thousands of colored lights with giant flowers, mushrooms, ornaments, candy canes, and classic Christmas characters.

Food stands, a Biergarten, and the Garden Cafe serve a variety of delicious meals and treats. Enjoy live music in the Biergarten. Carolers and musicians also perform in the garden.
If you get cold, warm up at one of the fire pits along the trails.
