Special Events

May 1 Happy Birthday Free Community Day

We’re celebrating a half-century in Nashville, and what better way to mark 50 years of art and gardens in the community than with a party for everyone! On Saturday, May 1 we will open our gates free of charge, and we encourage you to invite friends and neighbors to celebrate with us. We will be serving special birthday treats, and plan for an extended Saturday AM in Botanic Hall so our youngest fans can create something for our Birthday. Don’t miss the fun!
