Since 1965, The Toledo Botanical Garden has provided solace for NW Ohio residents looking to fall into foliage, strolling on picturesque trails lined with flowers. Often celebrating the similarities between natural beauty and artistic objects, the TBG’s campus boasts trees, flowers, numerous gardens and the Artist’s Village. To celebrate its 50th birthday, the TBG campus will extend their hours and relationship between art and nature for a unique, multi-sensory presentation, “The Garden After Dark”, allowing visitors to experience the gardens with a non-traditional evening. Socialize after hours while gazing at light projection installations created by the University of Toledo Art Department and The Work Collective. Be amazed by acrobats and feel the flames of the fire breather from the Birds Eye View Circus. Enjoy activities in the Artist’s Village and tour the Lithophane Museum. The Toledo School for the Arts Steel Drum Corps and DJ Rob Sample will provide music as guests dine on snacks from food vendors and sip craft beers by Maumee Bay Brewing Co. and botanically inspired cocktails by the Village on Adams. While the event is geared towards young professionals, art-lovers and socialites of all ages will enjoy the spectacle.
7-11pm, Saturday, May 30. $15. Toledo Botanical Garden, 5403 Elmer Dr. 419-536-5566.
