What time should I arrive?
The Concerts In The Garden box office opens at 5:30 p.m. Concerts In The Garden grounds open at 6:30 p.m. Concerts begin at 8:15 p.m.
If you have tickets on the lawn, please be aware that for some of our more popular concerts, such as Star Wars & Beyond, The Music of Pink Floyd, Classical Mystery Tour, and the Old-Fashioned Family Fireworks Picnic, patrons often begin lining up at the gate fairly early to secure their preferred spot on the lawn, as lawn seating is first-come, first-serve.
What should I bring?
Pack a picnic and bring a blanket or chairs. Concerts In The Garden is a casual, family-friendly, fun, festival atmosphere, so just about anything goes! You will see that some of our patrons really get into the picnic planning. In fact, you may be dazzled by some of the culinary arts on display! You can even bring your own beverages, including beer and wine, as glass containers are allowed.
Concessions and chair rental are both available on site for your convenience.
Please note that chairs should be no taller than 36 inches and tables should be no taller than an ice chest.
Smoking (including vaping), personal fireworks, firearms, open flames, pets, and tents/canopies are not permitted in the concert seating area.
Are there concessions or merchandise available on site?
Yes. The Gardens Restaurant provides concessions on concert nights with a variety of festival-style options available, including hot dogs, cotton candy, ice cream treats, and a variety of beverages.
You can order ahead from our Official Picnic Partner, Central Market, which has created a special menu for Concerts In The Garden. Simply order by phone and then pick up your picnic dinner when you arrive. On concert nights, The Gardens Restaurant provides concessions onsite.
The Fort Worth Botanical Society manages a gift shop where you can purchase your official festival T-shirt along with other fun items for the kids (and kids at heart). Chair rental is also available. Just look for the big tent in the center of the lawn area.
