First-timer Info

Thank you for purchasing tickets to a concert at Denver Botanic Gardens! There are a few helpful things to know about attending a concert at the Gardens.

York Street

  • You may bring your own alcohol. Alcohol is not for sale.
  • You may also bring food, though food is also available for purchase.
  • Parking can be tricky. The parking garage fills early, so street parking is the best bet. Watch out for “permit only” signs.
  • Entry is through the main gate off of York Street (near the Bonfils-Stanton Visitor Center) group gate just south of the Bonfils-Stanton Visitor Center. There is a secondary entrance through the Cheesman Park gate on the west side of the Gardens.
  • Seating is general admission, and a line can form early so folks can nab the seat they want. Folks read, knit, play cards, nap in line — sometimes for hours.
  • The venue is in the round.
  • Seating is all on the grass, so bring a blanket or a chair. If you bring a chair, total upright chair height (including legs and entire length of chair backs) may not exceed 26″.
  • You are welcome to explore the Gardens during your visit.
  • Doors open at 5:45 p.m.
