  • Tuesday, November 9, 2021

Join us on this special preview evening and be one of the first to see this year's creative installation of Moonlight in the Garden. Your senses will be delighted when the gates open on this crisp November evening.

For this evening only, you'll enjoy a custom catered menu of delectable eats with beer and wine. The indie-jazz tunes of Tea Cup Gin will add to this magical night of lights, fire pits and roasted marshmallows. Bring your family and friends to enjoy a nighttime stroll and a cup of hot apple cider during this unique fund-raising event.

Advance tickets are required. No tickets will be sold at the gate for this preview evening. Tickets will be limited to reduce the crowd and enhance your experience. This will be the only evening where beer and wine will be served.
