Festival of Fountains Season

Festival of Fountains

May 7–September 30, 2018

Our Celebration Continues

The revitalized Main Fountain Garden awakens for its second spectacular season and we plan to celebrate all summer long.

Please join us for:
Fountain Performances daily in our Main Fountain Garden and Open Air Theatre.
Illuminated Fountain Performances and Live Music in our Beer Garden on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.
Fireworks & Fountains Shows on six special nights.
Our Outdoor Performing Arts series.

Please note: Fountain shows continue through October 31 during Autumn’s Colors.

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.
