Botanical Garden of the Ozarks to host ‘Terrific Tuesday Nights’ this summer

Tuesdays aren’t just for tacos anymore.

They’re also for game nights, chamber music, ice cream socials, and more, it appears, according to the schedule of free events planned as part of Botanical Garden of the Ozarks’ Terrific Tuesday Nights Series.

The series kicked off this month and runs through August, and includes a host of family-friendly activities, music, and more on most Tuesdays from 5-8 p.m. this summer (the series takes a break for the 4th of July).

Events include a Summer Fiesta on June 27, a Bingo and Game night on July 11, an Amazing Animals event on Aug. 1, an Ice Cream Social on Aug. 8, and others.

There’s plenty of music on the schedule as well. There’s a Chamber Music on the Mountain event on July 25, and a Local Music Night on Aug. 15.

The full schedule of programming for the series is below. All of the events are free to attend and open to the public due to funds provided by the Pat and Willard Walker Foundation, Inc.

Registration is required, however. To register, visit
