Spectacular Summer Evenings

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 love to frolic on the lawn. Even the swallows seem determined to perform with stellar overhead acrobatics.

On summer Saturday nights in July and August, following the concert, the excitement builds for the spectacular Firework show. The pure pyrotechnic displays are synchronized, amazingly by hand firing, with music. Bring a blanket for the Fireworks Viewing Lawn, then sit and enjoy a show that you will not see anywhere in North America.
