We’re staying open late every Tuesday, March 22 – May 10, to make more hours for wildflowers! Make it a date night, a picnic with friends, or come for some solo solace in nature. Each evening will feature live music from local musicians, a rolling lineup of Austin’s favorite food trucks, and take-and-walk adult beverages will be available for purchase too.

Please note, masks are optional in all areas of the Center. Read our full safety guidelines here.

This event is included with regular garden admission. Reservations are required.

Tickets become available seven days in advance.
