Note: This Tuesday Twilight is a very special dog-friendly edition! See more below.
We’re staying open late every Tuesday March 23 – May 11 to make more hours for wildflowers! Make it a date night, a distanced picnic with friends, or come for some solo solace as spring does its thing. Each evening will feature live music from local musicians, featured visual artists, a rolling lineup of Austin’s favorite food trucks, and take-and-walk adult beverages will be available for purchase too. The Gift Store will remain open during Tuesday Twilights.
Please note, masks are required for all guests over the age of 2. Please read our full safety guidelines here.
This event is included with regular garden admission. Reservations are required. Booking opens 7 days in advance.
