The Devonian Botanic Garden would like to invite you on a date (we think your mother would approve)!

Date Night FAQs

What's the Date Night lineup for 2015? We're working on a great lineup of activities for the 2015 season, including the ever-popular dance lessons, movie night under the stars, games nights, music nights, fun-to-do-together activities and more. Check this website in early spring for more details.

What about the food? The outdoor Patio Cafe offers light fare (soup, sandwiches, paninis, hot dogs, burgers, ice cream) and is open late on Date Nights. You can enjoy your meal at the Patio Cafe, or take it to where the Date Night activities are being held in the Garden. At the Pine Pavilion, an assortment of beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available for purchase, along with free popcorn. If you prefer, you can bring in your own picnic to enjoy anywhere in the Garden.

What happens if it rains? We have you covered. On most Date Nights, activities take place under shelter in our Pine Pavilion. However, in the event of extreme weather, some activities may be postponed or cancelled.

Can you get me a date? Sorry, that part's up to you. But don't worry - we see groups of friends, families, singles (and romantic couples, of course) come out on Date Night to enjoy the Garden and the fun. You can come with your darling, your book club, or your mom - it's all good.

Are there any deals? You bet. The more you come, the less you pay - the discount rates for adult tickets are listed below. Consider purchasing multiple Date Night passes - you can give them as gifts, share them with a group, or plan on a regular night out with your special someone throughout the season - the choice is yours.
