Special Monday Afternoon Invitation
Ticketed Event

This event has reached capacity and tickets are no longer available. No tickets will be available at the gates on the event day.

Calling all families, nature enthusiasts, and amateur astronomers! Come gather on the Garden’s lawns to marvel at the sky as the moon passes between the Earth and sun.

Join us in observing the effects of the eclipse on our collections. Will blooms be fooled into closing? Will leaves turn in? Participate in our Garden-wide experiment and let us know what you see. The eclipse will last from 2:10 to 4:36 p.m., peaking at 3:25 p.m.

Blankets are welcome! Outside food is not permitted but may be purchased at the Canteen.

Free ISO-certified solar eclipse glasses provided by Warby Parker while supplies last. Please remember you should never look directly at the sun—even if you’re wearing sunglasses—without specifically designed eclipse glasses.
