Soak Up The Sunset: 30 Thursdays at the Memphis Botanic Garden

Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 12th 2018 887 0

This year, the Memphis Botanic Garden will host a brand-new weekly event: 30 Thursdays At The Garden! Every Thursday night April through October, you can hang out in the Garden until sunset and enjoy special activities: guided tours, cocktail specials, outdoor painting classes, yoga classes, and more.

These events all start at 6 p.m. on Thursdays, from April 19 through October 25. Isn’t this a great idea? I’m all about some after-hours activities for our local attractions.

Prices for 30 Thursdays at the Garden will vary depending on the event. Most of them are included in the MBG ticket price ($10 for adults, etc.).

Honestly, if you’re going to more than a few of these events, an annual membership – which is $45 for the lowest level – seems definitely worth it. Read more.

Below is the schedule. You can get more details here.
