Every year, there are certain holiday traditions my family looks forward to. The holiday show at Krohn Conservatory is always at the top of the list. Between the enchanting trains, colorful Christmas trees, and festive flowers, Krohn Conservatory is transformed into something magical each year.
This year’s event, A Very Merry Garden Holiday, is an exuberant celebration of the season, and a must-visit attraction for families. It’s a bright and beautiful bow tied on a year that’s been anything but.
As always, you’ll find the conservatory’s main showroom transformed into a wonderful, whimsical winter wonderland. It’s a total sensory experience complete with fragrant foliage, vibrant poinsettias, and cheerful locomotives chugging all around.
As in years past, A Very Merry Garden Holiday celebrates Cincinnati’s proud German heritage, with exquisitely detailed depictions of local landmarks. Once again, Applied Imagination has created a world unto itself, carving beautiful replicas of iconic buildings, all out of natural materials. Kids will have fun recognizing all the familiar places, like the Mt. Airy Treehouse, the Taft Museum, and even the Krohn Conservatory building (how’s that for a meta-moment?).
Of course, for kids, the trains are the main event—and they don’t disappoint. Younger kids will immediately recognize Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends, and delight in the long cargo trains in tracks running every which way. There’s a lot to take in, and luckily, Krohn Conservatory is a place you always want to stay and enjoy.
A Very Merry Garden Holiday at Krohn Conservatory is open daily through Jan. 10, 2021. A few COVID-19 precautions of note: All guests will have temperatures taken upon arrival, masks are required for anyone over the age of 6 (with some exceptions), and online ticket sales are encouraged.
