Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners (9400 Boerner Dr.) is more than just a gorgeous Milwaukee County park (and the site of the wildly popular China Lights). It’s also a great place to take in a free concert every summer. Yep, Boerner’s delightful Concerts In The Gardens series is back! And there are some solid acts in the 2024 lineup.

Sponsored by Wimmer Communities, Concerts In The Gardens take place on Thursdays, June 20 through August 29. Music begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until about 8:30 p.m. Food and drink will be available on-site (carry-ins are allowed, too), and there is no charge for the concerts or access to the gardens themselves.
