Visitors can bring chairs or blankets to enjoy music on the lawn or while strolling the Garden. Regular admission applies for Bands & Blooms – free for Garden members!

Rain won’t spoil our fun!  If weather gets damp, we’ll move the fun inside our Mabee Grange bring an umbrella for a quick walk from our visitor center to the Grange where we’ll have music, food and drinks set up.

Thursday evenings in October: BOOtanical Experience!

Throw on your favorite costume and join us Thursday evenings in October as the Children’s Discovery Garden transforms into an enchanting garden for a BOOtanical Experience!  Families can stroll through the lighted pathways and past non-spooky decorations to visit BOOtanical booths with games, crafts and more!  

With a ticket to BOOtanical, each child gets a wristband and bag for carrying their crafts and prizes.  Each child participating in BOOtanical Experience will need a BOOtanical ticket in addition to a regular admission ticket.

BOOtanical Experiences are rain or shine! Come dressed for weather.  If needed, we will move activities inside our Mabee Grange building.
