Delight in relaxing, live music surrounded by the Garden. Make a day of it with a picnic at sunset. Try delicious summer items from the Garden View Café or the Garden Grille. It’s BYOB—bring your own blanket, as chairs will not be provided.

McGinley Pavilion will close to the public at 4 p.m. on concert days and members with tickets may enter at 5 p.m. Please provide proof of purchase at the entrance; either printed or on your phone. You do not need to reserve timed-entry parking, just show your concert ticket for entry to the Garden.

In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be held in McGinley Pavilion or the Regenstein Center or canceled.

Note: If the event is canceled by the Garden, tickets will be refunded.
