For over 20 years, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has sponsored Concerts in the Garden, a series of outdoor concerts held in the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. This year’s festivities begin June 3 and run weekends through July 4, with 16 nights of concerts, each topped off with a nightly spectacular fireworks show.
With a wide variety of performers – scheduled acts include the “kings of Texas swing” Asleep at the Wheel, local pop-country favorites Green River Ordinance, and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra themselves performing everything from Pink Floyd to the music of Star Wars – there’s certainly something for everyone to enjoy. Both table seating and lawn seating are available, and guests are encouraged to pack a picnic basket and blanket to get the most out of the festival-like atmosphere (can you say “BYOB”?). The Gardens Restaurant also provides concessions like hot dogs, cotton candy, and beverages.
