Night Lights 2019 at Griffis Sculpture Park

For the 11th consecutive autumn, Griffis Sculpture Park will be illuminated in colorful theatrical lighting when NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park returns on Friday, September 8, 2023. A portion of the legendary park’s landscape and sculptures are seen in a whole different light. NIGHT LIGHTS is a successful fundraiser for the United States’ largest sculpture park – and a Western New York gem.

NIGHT LIGHTS will open from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The dates NIGHT LIGHTS will be open:

  • September 8 & 9
  • September 14 - 16
  • September 21 - 23
  • September 28 - September 30
  • October 5 - 8 
  • October 12 - 14

Guests will be able to venture on an unguided walk through a portion of the Mill Valley Rd site of the sculpture park, where the trails and sculptures will interact with creative lighting – creating a truly unique experience. Guests are encouraged to bring flashlights for a few darker sections of the trail. 

Tickets are sold online at Eventbrite in advance or can be purchased at the gate on the evening of the event. NIGHT LIGHTS can be canceled due to heavy rain. Updates will be provided on their website.

NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park is produced by SitlerHQ. The lighting and event company also produced the award-winning NIGHT LIGHTS at the Gardens (Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens), NIGHT LIGHTS at The Heron (Sherman, NY), and NIGHT LIGHTS at Nannen Arboretum (Ellicottville, NY). They created their first NIGHT LIGHTS show in 2009.

Over 250 sculptures reside at the 400-acre Griffis Sculpture Park, making it the United States largest sculpture park. The park is owned and operated by the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which also owns the Essex Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. The mission of the Ashford Hollow Foundation is to promote the visual and performing arts as well as construct a dynamic relationship between the arts and education in Western New York to better its young people and the greater community.
