Festival of Fountains
Our Celebration Continues
The revitalized Main Fountain Garden awakens for its second spectacular season and we plan to celebrate all summer long. Join us for daily performances when the fountains dance to stirring music and water jets shoot up to 175 feet high. Don't miss our Illuminated Fountain Performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, for an infinite mix of color, sound, music … and magic. Save the date for Fireworks & Fountains shows: May 26, July 1, July 21, August 11, September 1, and September 29.
Our outdoor Performing Arts series returns with award-winning artists, exceptional regional symphonies, talented local musicians, and more. Check back in the spring for the full lineup of performers.
Summer means breathtaking scenery and gorgeous blooms throughout our grounds and Conservatory. Discover the Waterlily Display, which showcases aquatic plants from all over the world. Get lost in our Meadow Garden, with three miles of walking trails through a rolling Brandywine Valley landscape. Be inspired in our Idea Garden, where we display annuals, perennials, vegetables, and some of the newest varieties of plants on trial.
From sunrise to nightfall, there is more to do, see, and be amazed by in our Gardens than ever before.
