Memorial Day Family Fun Weekend

About This Event


Included with garden admission or membership

Come out to the garden and enjoy activities for the whole family! Your kids will love to pop bubbles, pet farm animals and listen to stories. Enjoy fan favorites Country Critters petting zoo from 10am-2pm and story time, featuring tales of great contributors we have displayed in the garden, at 10am and 10:30am. In addition, we will have a live pianist at Jeanne’s pavilion from 12pm-2pm and a live band on the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage & Lawn from 2pm-4pm.

As we celebrate this special occasion, we would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the brave servicemen and women who have given their lives for our country. On Memorial Day, May 29, we are honored to offer complimentary individual admission to all active military personnel, veterans, and active first responders. This gesture is our way of expressing our appreciation for their selfless sacrifice and unwavering commitment to our country.
