What better way to celebrate this summer holiday weekend than with a concert in a garden? With lively music, free parking, and chairs inside our air-conditioned Conservatory, this is the concert you will want to attend this weekend.

Our first Sunflower Concert in the new Flower Garden

Over 300 people gathered for an enjoyable summer evening in the new Flower Garden for our first Sunflower Concert of the summer. Picnics, blankets, friends, families and dancing children filled three terraced lawns overlooking the Flower Garden stage to listen to Modern Skirts. If you'd like to see more photos, several were posted on Were You Spotted? at onlineathens.com.
