Kick back and relax at the Garden on Thursday evenings this summer! Stroll through the gardens; enjoy wine, music, dining al fresco and shopping. The location for this event is outside of the Historic Bloemendaal House.

Don't forget about our wonderful Family Activities!

Fidos After 5 is the second Thursday of each month (June 11, July 9, August 13) when leashed pets are invited as well. $2 suggested pet admission benefits the Richmond SPCA.

  • Flowers After 5 is rain or shine; in case of extreme inclement weather, activities will be moved inside.
  • The Garden's in-house caterer, Meriwether Godsey, offers wine by the glass and by the bottle, specialty beers, and food for purchase at the event site.
