Enjoy an enchanting one-hour musical performance of carillon bells on a warm summer evening and watch lights illuminate Evening Island.

Through a regularly scheduled series of concerts each summer, carillonneurs from around the world delight Garden visitors with the captivating music of the 48-bell Theodore C. Butz Memorial Carillon. Meet the performers and enjoy a free carillon tour and demonstration before the concert—you can even try your hand at ringing the bells.

Since 1986, the carillon has remained both a noted landmark and a source of remarkable music at the Garden. Crafted in Holland, the tower’s bronze bells and playing device with a range of four octaves constitutes one of the few hand-played carillons in the nation.

Preconcert carillon tours and demonstrations are from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. (every 15 minutes), and concerts are from 7 to 8 p.m.
