Enjoying live music in the Idaho Botanical Garden on summer nights has become a local tradition. Great Garden Escape happens every Thursday evening June through September, unless an Outlaw Field concert is scheduled for a Thursday, and features upbeat dancing, music, and friends. Bring your own low back chairs or a blanket. Picnic baskets are welcome (no alcohol), or guests can purchase food and beverages, including beer and wine, from the on-site vendors. Admission may be purchased the night of the concert at the gate, in advance online, or by calling or visiting the Garden office. Please bring low back chairs---no more than 8″ off the ground. (If you require a higher chair, seating areas will be available in the back or along the edges of the seating area.) Dress for the weather! Concerts will be performed rain or shine. In June and July, concert times are 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., gates open at 5:30. In August and September, concert times are 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., gates open at 5:00.
