Our Sunset Series has ended.
Check back next year for new dates!

Thirsty Thursdays just got better! Come join us for our new Sunset Series, a weekly event that will bring the Garden to life after hours on Thursdays from 5:30 to
8:30 p.m. starting in July!

Guests can roam our 87 acres or hang out at our Pop-Up Refreshment Station inside the Dorothy and Allen Lay Staghorn Fern Collection, where they can sip on a cocktail or grab a bite to eat while enjoying the Garden’s natural beauty, yard games and music. Kids will be entertained by the fun and energetic Ms. Allison – think parachutes, obstacle courses, lawn bowling, bubbles and more! While we provide the fun, parents still provide the supervision.*  Though this is not a concert series, there will be live performances by various artists on the Upper Meadow. The musicians will do two 45-minute sets. Make sure to check out the schedules below to find out the exact time of music, tours and kids activities for the date you plan to visit. 

This is truly an event for all, and we invite you to come and make the night yours!

Please note, no outside food and beverage will be allowed during our Sunset Series. 

*Parents are asked to chaperone their child at all times. Children under 3 must be accompanied inside the play area at all times.
