The Twilight Nights are set in the New Orleans Botanical Garden, a Works Progress project born in 1936, and a beautiful example of classic public garden design from the era. The Botanical Gardens boast the talents of architect Richard Koch, William Wiedorn, and artist Enrique Alferez, three notable names. The gardens contain over 200 varieties of plants set in this antiquated and picturesque setting, so grab that beer, wine, or mint julep and settle in!
The series runs every Thursday until October 13th, from 5-8pm and the music is often a variety of Jazz, Classical, and Latin American music. This is a popular event, so get there early – seating is limited to 400 people. $8 for adults, $3 for children age 5-12.
