Botanical Blues

Sunday Winter Concert Series
January-March 2020
2-4 p.m.

MARCH 14: In light of the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are suspending the last three weeks of our Botanical Blues concert series. We will make every effort to reschedule these performances. The Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden remains open for general admission and other scheduled events daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

Take a break from the cold winter weather and join us for Botanical Blues! Botanical Blues is our annual concert series that runs Sundays January through March in the Conservatory. The series features some of the best blues in the Midwest, as well as food and drinks from Trellis Café. It’s a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon fit for the whole family.
