On August 21st, 2017 people across America will look to the sky to find the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight. This causes the temperature to drop and reveals massive streams of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse. Join us on August 21st, 12-5pm to view the solar eclipse! Fayetteville is only in the path for a partial solar eclipse but we will be able to see about 90% of the eclipse. The maximum solar eclipse will be at 2:45pm. The food truck, Authentique Cafe will be on site for snacks at 1pm. Enjoy lawn games and the beautiful Garden backdrop as you witness a natural phenomenon. Free for Garden Members and regular daily admission applies for non-members.
