Houston entertainers to provide family-friendly live music in spacious, beautiful setting

Beginning Sunday, May 2, the Houston Botanic Garden will host its inaugural Sunday Concert Series, with six consecutive Sunday afternoons featuring musical styles as unique, and globally inspired, as the Garden’s collection.

Each Sunday, May 2-June 6, from 3-5 p.m., the sound of live music will combine with the aural sensations of nature to provide attendees with a refreshing, family-friendly outdoor cultural experience.

In partnership with Allen Hill Entertainment, the Garden curated the artist line-up to reflect and embrace the diversity of both the surrounding community and the wide-ranging cultural influences that make Houston such a creative hub.

Each Sunday Concert Series performance is included in the cost of general admission. Ticket prices on Sundays are $15 for adults and $10 for students (with current ID) and children age 3 and older. Concessions, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase; outside food and drink are prohibited.

The Garden continues to require visitors 10 years or older to wear a cloth face covering (buff, bandana, or mask) over the nose and mouth at all times. Seating for the outdoor concerts will be spaced to allow for social distancing between families/groups.

“As vaccination rates increase, we sense that Houstonians are ready to ease back into shared cultural experiences in safe ways,” said Claudia Gee Vassar, president and general counsel of the Houston Botanic Garden. “The Garden’s acres and acres of cultivated gardens and natural ecosystems present a perfect backdrop for family-friendly entertainment and memory-making.”

The Garden’s entry drive, One Botanic Lane, is located at 8210 Park Place Blvd., and the Garden is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with last entry at 4:30 p.m.
