Music in the Gardens

Music in the Gardens 2020 :: Sundays @ 6:30p

DAC-DABG-230x335When the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens constructed the Packard Pavilion as a venue for outdoor concerts, the Dubuque Arts Council joined us and began presenting a number of our summer evening events that we call Music in the Gardens. We’re very grateful for their partnership over the years.

Held Sunday evenings at 6:30p — during June, July, and August — thousands of tri-state area residents gather on the lawn with family and friends to enjoy a wide variety of popular musical attractions that range from swing to country, jazz to blues, classical to show choirs on steroids, and more. Local, regional and national acts have played the Arboretum.
