NightWood is back!

Please join us for the second year of our ethereal winter landscape inspired by The Mount’s unique architecture and history. NightWood combines music, lighting, and theatrical elements to create seven unique scenes that evoke feelings of wonder, mystery, and magic:

The Woods
The Eternal City (NEW)
The Courtyard
The Winter Garden
The Lane
The Glade
The Conference of Trees (NEW)

Learn more about the project and those who created it.

NightWood is an outdoor sound and light experience set against the backdrop of The Mount.

The total route is approximately 3/4 of a mile through the woods and gardens and includes both paved and unpaved pathways, inclines, and stairs.
