The Garfield Park Conservatory, located at 300 N. Central Park Ave., is excited to announce the opening of the 2023 Artist’s Garden Exhibit, Fairy Garden! This seasonal outdoor exhibit will open on July 5 and run through September 17, 2023. Garfield Park Conservatory is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Closed on Monday and Tuesday. 

This summer’s Fairy Garden exhibit features more than 15 magical fairy houses set creatively within the beautiful flowers and greenery of the Artist’s Garden. Classic flowers including hollyhock, sunflower, sweet alyssum, and nasturtium are joined by enchanting varieties such as ‘Fairy Queen’ Salvia, ‘Dreamland Pink’ Zinnia, and ‘Spellbound White Blush’ Petunia. The mini-homes represent a wide range of design styles and materials, limited only by the builders’ imaginations. If you do not already believe in fairies, this display might just change your mind! 

Admission is $5 for adults and youth under 18 years old, people who live in Garfield Park residents, and Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance (GPCA) members enter for free. Reservations are required. Book your visit here.
