Gardens at Night

A popular MSV tradition, Gardens at Night (GAN) offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy live music, check out the MSV exhibitions at night, and explore the Museum’s seven-acre Glen Burnie Gardens under dramatic nighttime lighting. Held from 6 to 9 p.m. on the second Friday of the months June through September, GAN also includes free activities for children and food, wine, and beer available for purchase.

Mark your calendar for a summer of Gardens at Night fun at the MSV! The 2017 series of outdoor concerts will feature a lineup of four great bands, all making their Gardens at Night debut. Here’s the lineup:

June 9: Adrian Duke Project will play a mix of Motown, soul, and rock-and-roll

July 14: Another Level brings classic rock and contemporary hits to the MSV

August 11: Go back to the '70s, '80s, and '90s with retro band The Real Geniuses

September 8: Eagles tribute band Alter Eagles.

Concerts take place outdoors on the MSV lawn, and both the gardens and galleries will be open throughout the night. Gardens at Night are FREE to MSV Members, children ages 12 & under, and—thanks to sponsor Navy Federal Credit Union—admission is also FREE to active military personnel and their families (including National Guard and Reserve). Admission for all others is just $10 per person (includes concert, garden & exhibition admission). Save big on summer fun and become a Member. Additional fees apply for food and wine purchases. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Bring a chair. Rain or shine!
