Fourth of July at Lewis Ginter

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and CarMax are pleased to announce CarMax's Free Fourth of July at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. On July 4, all visitors to the Garden will receive free admission throughout the day (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) The free admission includes entrance to the popular Butterflies LIVE! exhibit. The Garden is open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. with scheduled activities in the Children's Garden from 1 - 4 p.m.

Guests are invited to wear red, white and blue and bring wagons and strollers to decorate for a "parade" in the Children's Garden at 2 p.m. Enjoy music by the Happy Lucky Combo, WaterPlay and fun activities.


We anticipate great interest and have plans in place to help accommodate guests. Your patience is greatly appreciated on this day when we have lots of activity! Much of the Garden is an outdoor walking experience, so please dress appropriately with comfortable shoes and clothing. You may want to bring a hat and wear sunscreen. The Garden's Library will be open as a cooling station. The Garden Shop will also be open. A limited number of wheelchairs and strollers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
