Get ready for some holiday fun, because Ethel M ChocolatesHoliday Cactus Garden is returning for their 29th year!

The attraction has been a popular Christmas tradition for many families in Southern Nevada, and this year will be no different.

This year, the event runs from November 4th until January 1st. Hours are from 5pm until 10pm nightly. In addition to the stunning lights display with hundreds of thousands of lights twinkling upon the cactus, there’s more! A food truck will be on site selling delicious goodies to warm you up on a chilly evening. You can get your picture taken with Santa himself! And of course, no visit to the cactus garden would be complete without a cup of Ethel M’s famous hot chocolate or getting something tasty from the gift shop.

Speaking of the gift shop – here’s a pro-tip: pre-order! The crowd inside can get a bit overwhelming. If you know what you want, save yourself the trouble, pre-order and skip the line when you get there. Future you will thank us. Also be sure to bring a coat to wear, it can get a bit nippy.

No more reservations!

Reservations are not required this year (we are returning to normal!), so you can just show up and enjoy. There is a $1 entrance fee per person this year, however. No, it’s not a money grab! All proceeds are being donated to HELP Of Southern Nevada and Three Square Food Bank. This event is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit with friends or family! So mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate the season in a way only Southern Nevada can.
