JAZZFEST (Sunday, April 27th 11am—2pm)
Coming up next is Jazzfest. Don’t miss this laid back and uber cool afternoon in the sun on the plaza with live jazz from 3 professional trios, as well as some activities for the kids like cookie decorating and crafts from the Church Street School for Music & Art. This event is being sponsored for the 2nd year in a row by our friends at TD Bank, who are great supporters of Friends of Bogardus Garden, and the entire neighborhood.
CELEBRATE SPRING (Sunday, May 18th 10:30am—12:30pm)
Following on the heels of Jazzfest, is our most popular event, Celebrate Spring! It’s the prettiest time in the garden and the best time of the year to join friends on the plaza for this busy family-friendly event. We’ll have tons of free kids activities, performances, live music and delicious treats from area restaurants. Sadly this event was rained out not once, but TWICE last year, so please make sure you cross your fingers and pray for beautiful, sunny skies this year!
