Music at the Gardens

Traditional concerts return to the UMB Bank Amphitheater, and weeknight performances throughout the Gardens continue during Evenings al Fresco.

June-August, various evenings

Join us this summer for two distinct music series in partnership with Swallow Hill Music. Plug in to one series or both! The botanical surroundings are the same but the experiences for each are quite different.

Summer Concert Series

  • Eight concert evenings in June and July
  • Shows begin at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Dining Options for Both Series

Food is available for purchase at the Gardens, but alcohol is not. You may bring alcohol in its original container to both the Summer Concert Series and Evenings al Fresco. 

Offshoots Café and the Hive Garden Bistro will be open during concerts and Evenings al Fresco. Hours will vary between the two series. 


We continue to follow state and local COVID-19 safety mandates and will regularly communicate any changes or updates to our policies via email and our website. We appreciate your patience and adaptability during these uncertain times, and we thank you in advance for helping us bring back traditional summer concerts this year as part of Music at the Gardens.

Do you have your parking permit? It is important for all Gardens' York Street neighbors to have a current parking permit during our Summer Concert Series to avoid getting a ticket. Parking permits are not needed for Evenings al Fresco. 

Here is information about how to get your FREE parking permit, including a map of the residential parking permit district.
