Stroll through the gardens; enjoy live music, wine, and beer and dining and shopping at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden for Flowers After 5 beginning August 6th.

Tickets for Flowers After 5 will be limited and timed tickets will be required for all guests, including members.  Tickets will be available online ONLY (no walk-ups). The event is rain or shine; no refunds. Cost is $14 adults; $11 senior citizens (65+); $8 children age 3-12; free for children under 3 and members. Included is the brand-new, nationally traveling exhibit M&T Bank: Wind, Waves and Light, featuring large-scale, stainless steel kinetic sculptures that move and change with the wind.

With more than 50 acres, guests can socially distance while exploring the gardens. Instead of one band at one location, the performers are splitting into soloists or duos into two locations, allowing for social distancing and providing background music for evening strolls and dining. The second and fourth Thursday nights are also Fido’s Nights when the Garden partners with the Richmond SPCA and leashed dogs are allowed.

Guests are invited to bring their own blankets and chairs. Food is not allowed to be brought into the Garden, but there is an option to purchase food online to eat outside in the Garden. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, snacks, desserts, drinks, and kids’ meals, as well as “Family Bistro Boxes” with choices of chicken tacos, salmon, and pork BBQ, all available via online ordering. Beer, wine, and hard seltzers will also be available for purchase in several spots throughout the Garden.

Fidos dates: August 13 & 27, September 10 & 24, 2020.
