What to Know Before You Go

  • This year’s Garden Party is located along the Art Trail between the South Lobby and Compton Gardens, at the Skyspace just off the south end of the Art Trail, on the Frank Lloyd Wright Bachman-Wilson House Lawn, and on the museum’s South Lawn.
  • This is a free, drop-in event. No tickets or pre-registration are required, so swing by and enjoy the fun!
  • Worried about the weather? Call the Inclement Weather line at (479) 657-2488 to check on any rain plans. If weather-related issues arise, a decision to move the event indoors will be made by 8 a.m. the day of the event.
  • Parking options include Crystal Bridges’ upper, lower, and additional parking areas near the main entrance. We also welcome you to walk or bike from downtown Bentonville via the Art Trail.
