Each Thursday, beginning June 13, the Botanical Garden will remain open until 9:30 p.m. with music from 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. Trellis Cafe will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. with entrees, small plates, craft beers and signature cocktails. Attendees can explore the garden, play lawn games, participate in kids’ activities, see gardening demonstrations and talk with gardening experts during various weeks throughout the series.

This week, catch Tony Valdez and the Rockets. On June 20, Diplomats of Solid Sound will perform. The full summer schedule, tickets and other details are available here. Social Irrigation is included with the regular cost of admission (members free; adults $10; seniors and military $9; students 4-17 $7; children 3 and under free).
