The York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on July 1 and 2 for concerts.

Plants and people are masters of misdirection and illusion – fortunately, fascinating entertainment is often the by-product! Enjoy the warmth and color of Marnie’s Pavilion and the Orangery after dark and savor themed food and beverages for purchase. Great for singles, couples and friends!
