Moonlight Stroll Concert Series at Sonnenberg Gardens

The Gardens are Lit Again — Featuring music from Jazz to Celtic to Rock. Come see your favorite gardens aglow with lights, and stroll the grounds on a balmy summer’s eve – the ONLY time all year that the beauty of Sonnenberg is showcased at night!

Performers will be located on our Mansion Veranda. Bring your folding lawn chairs and picnic blankets or choose from among some of the (limited) seats Sonnenberg provides. All concerts are held rain or shine. Snack on light refreshments or sip delicious wines by the glass sold by our Finger Lakes Wine Center.
