Summer Music Series

Spend starlit evenings on the grounds of Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, with three different programs of world-class orchestral performances each night! Pack a picnic and enjoy live music performed against the backdrop of the illuminated John F. Wolfe Palm House. Bring the whole family and join us one hour before each concert for music and garden inspired children’s activities on the Wolfe Terrace (behind the stage). Performances are FREE and all ages are welcome!

Pack a picnic or enjoy food from the Conservatory’s Garden Cafe food truck. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. No outside alcohol is permitted.

Gates will open at 5:00 PM each evening. Please note that per Franklin Park Conservatory’s new pet policy, dogs will not be permitted inside the gates of Franklin Park Conservatory, so please leave your furry friends at home. Only service dogs will be permitted.
