Concerts in the Gardens

Mission Statement

We are committed to providing an extraordinary experience for live performance celebrating the emotion and sense of community that music creates by showcasing musical talent and creativity while providing a superior experience for our audience.

The Concerts in the Gardens is a summer event proudly sponsored by Wimmer Communities, which is held at The Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.

Performances occur every Thursday throughout the summer beginning at 6:30 p.m. and ending at approximately 8:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted.  Admission to The Boerner Botanical Gardens to attend the summer concerts is free after 6:00 p.m. and attendees are welcome to walk through the gardens afterward at no additional cost.

These concerts allow Milwaukee residents the opportunity to appreciate the The Boerner Botanical Gardens while enjoying a mixture of musical genres.  Food and beverages are available for purchase at the concerts, however, guests are also allowed to bring their own food.
