Thirsty Thursdays are getting better this Summer! Come join us for the second season of our Sunset Series, a weekly event that brings the Garden to life after hours on Thursdays from 5:30 to 8 p.m. starting May 25!
After a sold-out series last year, our Sunset Series is heading back! Guests can roam our 87 acres or hang out at Dottie’s, our new food and beverage concessions station near the Living Wall, where they can sip on a cocktail or grab a bite to eat while enjoying the Garden’s natural beauty, yard games and music. The young at heart will be entertained in our Kids’ Zone 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.* And, of course, the cherry on top is each week’s musical performance (see line up below). The musicians will do two 45-minute sets.
NEW FOR 2023: Want an exclusive experience? Buy a VIP ticket and get premium seating area (still bring a blanket or lawn chair), access to the VIP bar, one free non-alcoholic Butterfly Palmer per ticketholder, unlimited access to SOAR – Tropical Butterflies throughout the night and early entry into the Garden (5 p.m. rather than 5:30 p.m.).
This is truly an event for all, and we invite you to come and make the night yours!
*Parents are asked to chaperone their child at all times. Children under 3 must be accompanied inside the play area at all times. Also please note, no outside food and beverage will be allowed during our Sunset Series.

“Excellent summer series, my husband, son and I enjoyed it very much. My son really enjoyed the walking around the Gardens in the evening, the games, the music and food. Thank you!”
“We truly enjoyed both of the Sunset Series visits! Easy to use, quick entry, good selection of food and drinks, and good music:)”
“I loved the event. My kids loved the activities with Ms. Allison, and the music. I personally loved how spacious the gardens are and how the different spaces were well utilized for food, drinks, treats and tours. So well done!”
