Gardens at Night is back! There's a great lineup of bands along with some important changes to this summer's concert series; please read this information carefully

  • Due to crowd size restrictions, capacity at each concert is limited and tickets will be presale only (no ticket sales at the gate).
  • Two weeks before each concert, tickets will go on sale to MSV members; MSV members will be emailed a passcode to access ticket sales.
  • One week prior to the concert, ticket sales open to all. Join the MSV!
  • Tickets will be sold online; click here for September 10 concert tickets.
  • In order to keep attendance to the mandated size and allow for physical distancing, every attendee, including ages 12 & under, will need to have a ticket.
  • Ticket prices, which include admission to the gallery building and formal gardens, are as follows:
    • MSV members, active military & individual retired veterans: $5 per person.
    • Ages 12 & under: $1 per person
    • All others: $15 per person 
  • All attendees are encouraged to wear masks in indoor spaces (restrooms & galleries); unvaccinated attendees are required to wear masks indoors at the MSV.

  • Bring a chair/blanket to sit on.
  • Rain/shine; dress for the weather.
  • No refunds unless the concert is cancelled by the MSV. In all other instances, sales are final.
