When the sun goes down, the gardens light up for the prettiest holiday stroll of the season, featuring more than a million lights throughout our 55 acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Enjoy seasonal favorites like real reindeer, a Poinsettia Tree, and TRAINS! lit up for the holidays.
New this year are Medical & Military Mondays, when Military, First Responders, and Healthcare Workers can enjoy half-priced admission every Monday night during the season. Tickets do sell out, so reserve your timed-entry tickets to Holiday LIGHTS in advance.

The magic of The Nutcracker comes to life at Cheekwood! In partnership with Nashville Ballet, Cheekwood will display a collection of traditional and non-traditional nutcrackers and costumes from Nashville’s Nutcracker throughout the Historic Mansion & Museum. Witness this timeless holiday story unfold before your eyes through vignettes across Cheekwood’s period rooms.
It wouldn’t be the holidays without Cheekwood’s beloved Poinsettia Tree! This year, our Poinsettia Tree will be on display in the Great Hall of the Frist Learning Center. Stop by to get a family photo in front of our iconic Poinsettia Tree!
Get warm by the fire and roast a marshmallow or two! Located at the bottom of the mansion drive, our fire pits are the perfect spot to take a break, grab a seasonal beverage, and take in the scenery.
