Autumn Newsletter 2014


Sponsored by the Canadian Tourism Commission, the Canadian Garden Tourism Award for the Event of the Year for 2014 has been awarded to The Butchart Gardens.

Each summer The Gardens complements the sights and scents with a festival of daily concerts and events. The open air concerts take place on the Concert Lawn stage. Come sit on a bench, or bring a blanket and sit on the lawn. You'll enjoy the on-stage performances and, on toe-tapping music nights, the performances by visitors' children who just have to frolic on the lawn. Even the swallows seem determined to perform with stellar overhead acrobatics.

On summer Saturday nights, after the concert, the excitement builds for the spectacular Firework show. The pyrotechnic displays are synchronized, amazingly by hand firing, with music. Come with a blanket to sit upon and enjoy a show you are unlikely to see unequalled anywhere in North America.
