Come experience an evening of drop-in, creative fun under the stars with music, food, artmaking, and more. From artmaking to performances, we’re transforming the Art Trail into a glowing garden of light and imagination that’s fun for all ages.

Kick off the night with a one-of-a-kind sunset view at Skyspace, then mosey over to one of our themed artmaking stations to flex those creative muscles. Live music more your style?Be sure to catch one of our guest artists at one of several performance areas throughout the grounds.

We’ll also have a pop-up concessions and bar area serving late-night snacks, sips, and brews for those wanting a little refreshment.

So grab your glow gear and come explore with us in starlit style—it’s sure to be a night to remember.

Free, no tickets required. Drop by anytime from 8 to 11 p.m.
