Coming up next

Boos + Brews (October 17)

Adults, round up your friends for a fun fall evening at the Gardens! We’ll light up the night with thousands of twinkly lights and dance to live music by The Honeygoats. Enjoy craft beer from the Sheboygan Beer Company, culinary treats for purchase from the JMKAC Art Car, and more. What better way to spend a crisp, autumn Thursday evening? Adults only (21+). Pre-sale tickets now available. At the door tickets: $10 Members / $12 Non-Members

Happily Haunted Gardens (October 18, 19, 24, 25, 26)

The Gardens will be filled with thousands of twinkly lights, live book characters, entertainment, trick or treat stations and fun surprises during this beloved, not-so-spooky event from 5 - 8 PM each night. Costumes are encouraged! Dinner concessions will be available for purchase including chili, grilled cheese, hot dogs and more.

Members: FREE! (no need to pre-register). Non-members: For the first time, we will be pre-selling tickets to this event. Advance tickets are available online for $5 each, compared to $7 at the door. Learners 2 and younger are FREE. Pre-purchase tickets are non-refundable, however in the case of inclement weather they may be transferred to another Happily Haunted 2019 evening. Thank you to our event sponsors: Bullard Children’s Dentistry + We Energies Foundation. Interested in sponsoring the event? Contact Heidi with questions.

To improve traffic flow, ease congestion, and protect our plants, we strongly encourage visitors to leave strollers and wagons at home. Please consider bringing a smaller umbrella stroller if this is a necessity for your family, or plan to park them at a monitored stroller parking station outside our front gate during Happily Haunted Gardens. Wagons will not be allowed. Your cooperation will make the event more enjoyable for all!
