Description

June 7-8, 2014: The Rose Garden Celebration
Come June, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden is a sea of warm color, flush with the reds, whites, yellows, and pinks of more than 4,000 blooming plants. In celebration of the delicate beauty that defines this collection, as well as the peak of its seasonal color, stop by for two days of live music, plant care demonstrations and tours with expert rosarians, and light summer refreshments in the shade of the garden’s overlooks.

June 14-15, 2014: Big Backyard BBQ & Music Festival
Make the sprawling lawns of Daffodil Hill your backyard while kicking off summer’s festivities with live music, outdoor fun, and a selection of barbecue styles. Food and drink samplings from New York-based specialty purveyors come paired with family entertainment throughout the weekend, and it’s the perfect opportunity to get dad out of the house for Father’s Day! We’ll also have an array of local New York craft brews on hand to keep you cool.

Children under the age of 2 do not require a ticket. Child tickets (age 2-12) are available for $15 upon arrival.

The New York Botanical Garden is a museum of plants, an educational institution, and a scientific research organization. Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, it is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States, distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope and excellence of its programs in horticulture, education, and science.

The Botanical Garden's curated living collections contain more than 1 million plants; its Continuing Education program is the largest and most diverse of any botanical garden in the world; its Children's Education program has been a pioneer in innovative, informal science discovery facilities and activities; and its scientific research on plants and fungi is unmatched in scope, depth, and authority.
