Media passes for Enchanted

Thank you for your interest in Descanso Gardens – we appreciate your coverage!

Enchanted has a limited number of media passes

Because of the incredible popularity of Enchanted Forest of Light, we can’t accommodate all of the requests for media passes.

Enchanted special Press Preview

We offer a special Press Preview where media and influencers can experience the event when Enchanted opens, and after that on a case-by-case basis.

Media pass requests after the Press Preview

All media and influencers requesting media passes AFTER the Press Preview must have an assignment or agree to cover the event. All decisions regarding media passes are at the discretion of Descanso Gardens.
