What is Memphis Botanic Garden doing about mosquitoes in the area?

Before all major events, we treat areas with organic insect repellent to ward off mosquitoes from the area. All water gardens, lakes, pools, etc. are stocked with fish to eat the mosquito larvae. All fountains or other water sources without fish are treated with chlorine or are constantly moving out an overflow to prevent mosquito larvae from hatching.

Can I purchase food at the concerts?

Of course! Several vendors will be on-site to tempt you with tantalizing Garden treats, like hamburgers grilled to perfection and icy sno-cones to keep you cool. We also feature Buster's Botanical Bar where thirsty concert-goers can purchase a great selection of frosty and refreshing beverages. You can also pre-order food from one of our preferred caterers and pick your food up at the Kroger Food Court, located right inside the gates.
