The Garden at Sunset and Twilight

Escape to a garden paradise, bring your friends or bring a date! Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden has over 50 acres of fragrant blooms and cool evening breezes—perfect for a special night out. In 2023, a major attraction during Wednesdays Alfresco is the sculpture exhibit Incanto: An Oasis of Lyrical Poetry.


While anyone can enjoy the extended hours on Wednesday night, Alfresco is designed to be a relaxing evening for couples or friends to spend time together in the Garden.
