River of Lights Postponed for 2020

We hope to see you again next year.

Nov. 20, 2020 - Staying safe and healthy is at the top of everyone’s holiday wish list. To support these efforts, the New Mexico BioPark Society has decided to postpone the 2020 River of Lights, our largest fundraiser for the year. While this announcement comes with a huge loss of funding for the ABQ BioPark, we are committed to helping prevent community spread of COVID-19.

With optimism for the new year ahead, and the light sculptures you know and love already in place at the Botanic Garden, we are exploring ways to make your 2021 a little brighter in the coming months.

We would like to offer our sincerest gratitude to Bank of Albuquerque, our presenting sponsor, for their incredible commitment to River of Lights and the community at large. 

A special thanks goes out to our media partners KOB TV 4, 100.3 The Peak, 94 Rock, and 100.9 The Breeze for their continued support over the years.

The future looks bright if we all work together. Please mask up, stay home, and we hope to see you in 2021.

- Julie Miller Rugg, executive director of the New Mexico BioPark Society
