Midsummer Delight

Spend Summer Saturday Evenings at the Garden

Wherefore art Shakespeare in the Garden?

Embark on an enchanted evening stroll of the Houston Botanic Garden on the trail of floral sights and smells plucked from the works of Shakespeare. In advance of the Houston Shakespeare Festival’s 50th anniversary performances of “Romeo & Juliet” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Miller Outdoor Theater from August 1-10, representatives of the troupe will help us bring garden-themed lines penned by the Bard to life among our living plant collections. Embrace your inner fairy – costumes encouraged — as you go plantspotting, engage in some good-natured Shakespearean put-downs, and more.

Midsummer Delight is included in the cost of general admission to the Garden, which is $15 per adult, $10 per child/student on Summer Saturdays. Garden members may use the general admission benefit(s) associated with their membership level to participate at no additional charge.

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email​​
