Mardi Gras
Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens


Early seating opens at 5:30. Shows start at 6:30 p.m.


Tickets are $5 for each event, general admission on the Great Lawn. A limited number of chairs are provided, so bring your own lawn chairs and/or blankets. The open-air Conservatory, Terrace, and Pavilion are wheelchair accessible. The easiest wheelchair access to the Terrace is through the Front Welcome Archway.


Parking is free on a first-come, first-served basis. For General Admission parking, please use the Petting Farm lot first, and then the grass lot off of Northline. Follow the parking signs and attendant’s directions. The main lot in front of the Conservatory is reserved for handicapped, motorcycles, band and artist vehicles.

Check out the 2020 Music & Art in The Gardens line-up below.

You can find the sponsorship form for 2020 Music & Art in The Gardens here.


All shows are rain or shine, but if extreme weather (storms, wind, or heat) is forecast, we may move to a covered facility. Umbrellas are permitted at user’s own risk. No refunds are issued in the event that extreme weather causes a cancellation. Check our Facebook page for the most updated information on the night of a performance.


The Gardens are a nicotine-free environment. Cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, cigars, chewable tobacco and similar products are not allowed on Garden property including all grounds, restrooms and parking areas.

Outside food, beverages, and coolers are not permitted. Empty water bottles are permissible. Beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, bottled water are available for sale, as well as scrumptious food menu items for purchase each week with our pop-up restaurants.

Children aged five and younger receive free admission. All others require a $5 entry wristband. Children are welcome at the concerts, but please use your best judgment, as sound levels may be too much for tiny ears.  Be considerate of the experience for those around you as well.


Pets are not allowed during special events such as Music and Art in the Gardens, but service animals are. Pets are welcome on a 6′ leash, during regular business hours when there is not a special event planned.

We Need Your Support Today!

The Taylor Conservatory Foundation is excited to announce that we have allowed our Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens to be used by the City of Taylor for part of the Taylor Winterfest Blizzard of Oz.   

Beginning approximately November 5, our site will be closed off with temporary fencing to permit the set-up for this wonderful holiday event.  

See for ticket information.  We expect the temporary fencing to be removed in mid-January.


Whether you want to get your hands in the dirt, or stay clean and help out in our office, or a little of both, we have lots of things to do in the gardens and office.

We need volunteers of all skill levels!
