Butchart Gardens Spring (Mary-lee Sampson)

What’s better than an outdoor, open-air concert to end off the perfect summer day?

An outdoor, open-air concert surrounded by acres of incredible garden views. 

This summer, evening entertainment is back at the Butchart Gardens. 

On Friday and Saturday nights starting July 1st until September 3rd, Butchart Gardens will host 20 musical performances on the concert stage lawn, with performances including everything from kitchen party folk, to Dixieland, boogie woogie music, ska, classical, blues, folk, jazz and more.

The concert series kicks off with Juno award winning duo Big Little Lions on July 1st, followed by other notable acts such as singer-songwriter Stephen Fearing and Curtis Clearksy and the Constellations later in the month.

The performances will be included in the price of an admission ticket or 12-month pass, so you can take in all 55 acres of incredible gardens before your show.

Two for the price of one! 

The gardens will also be extending their hours of operation from Thursdays to Sundays, to accommodate for the summer concert series and to offer night illuminations. 

Unfortunately, due to staff shortages, fireworks will not be offered at the gardens this year.
