Gibbs Gardens introduces
'Twilight in the Gardens'
"When evening’s twilight gathers round,
When every flower is hushed to rest,
When leaves breathe not a sound,
And, every bird flies to its nest...
Then I think of thee my love, I think of thee my love"
J. L. Hatton
Ever since Gibbs Gardens opened to the public on March 1, 2012, visitors have been asking for an opportunity to experience the Gardens at sunset. Photographers want to catch the softer light as the sun goes down, creating breathtaking reflections in the Japanese Garden’s seven ponds. Some folks simply want to take a relaxing stroll along paths bordered by fragrant flowers while the afternoon turns dusky. Others say the Gardens are the most incredibly beautiful spot for a grown up “date night”—the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine while listening to music as the sun sets. We listened to all your suggestions and put together our first “after hours” event just for you.
Taking a moment to enjoy the Gardens' serenity
Join us for Twilight in the Gardens until the Gardens close at 9:30 p.m., beginning Saturday, April 26 and (weather permitting) continuing every Saturday night through June 28. The first Twilight in the Gardens event will feature celebrity chef Hans Rueffert from Jasper’s Woodbridge Inn offering a variety of gourmet snacks, appetizers and beer from the Fannin County Brewery for purchase in the green tent. Gibbs Gardens will provide a cash bar featuring a selection of beer, soft drinks and wine, including some varieties from Rabun County’s Tiger Mountain Vineyard. Sweetwater, a musical favorite from 2013 performances at the Manor House, will perform in the Arbor Grove.

And, of course, center stage are the Gardens as spring bursts into glorious full bloom. A thousand mature dogwoods grace the hills and ridges this month. More than 1,000 azaleas – Kurume, Indica, Satsuki, native azaleas and many others – start blooming in April and continue through summer into fall. Fiddleheads in The Fern Dell peek through the ground in early April then grow more lush each day through October. This is one of the largest natural ferneries in the country, sprawling along streambeds for more than half a mile in the Valley Gardens. You haven’t experienced spring until you’ve visited Gibbs Gardens.
Each Saturday, from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m., Gibbs Gardens will offer music and a selection of wine, beer and soft drinks at a cash bar while different area restaurants present creative, high quality appetizers and finger foods to purchase for your enjoyment. The Gardens will close at 9:30 p.m. Gibbs Gardens will not have a cover charge but regular Garden admission fees will apply to non-members; as always, members are admitted free.
We need your help in planning for this event
To make this event a success and to ensure we have enough seating, food and beverages, we need your help. We want all of our 4-Season Membership holders to know that we value you as guests and we are asking you to partner with us for this first event. Please send us an email — email@example.com — with your name and number of visitors if you want to share in the wine and beer festivities. This number will be used for planning purposes only since we have no prior history to base our beverage ordering.
Twilight in the Gardens, with your help, will hopefully be an ongoing event at Gibbs Gardens. I look forward to seeing you in the gardens.
Don’t forget: Gibbs Gardens blooms for you,
