Terrific Tuesday Nights at the Botanical Gardens

If you’re looking for a gorgeous location to spend a summer night in Fayetteville, one you'll find recommended again and again is the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks! There are countless reasons to make frequent visits to this Fayetteville gem, including to visit its twelve themed gardens and the region’s only native butterfly house—but you might not realize one of the best excuses to come to the BGO is for the fun and FREE Terrific Tuesday Nights that take place throughout the summer season.

Terrific Tuesday Nights at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is a series of family-friendly programming celebrating Fayetteville's beautiful summer evenings, open to the public at no charge. On Tuesdays during the months of June, July, and August, gates will be open between 5 and 8:30pm for the community to gather and enjoy an evening outdoors in the Ozarks. Picnics, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome, but please leave your non-human friends at home for this one!
