After Hours Member-Guest Strolls

Thursday -  May 17, June 14, July 19,  August 16, September 20 

Members (and their guests for a fee of $10) are invited to stroll through the gardens after Ladew is closed to the general public. Stroll the gardens at your leisure and enjoy prosecco and wine and snacks in the courtyard. 5 – 7 pm.

Reservations are not necessary.

In an effort to be more environmentally-conscious, Ladew Gardens now requires that all Ladew members present their membership cards in the Visitors Center upon each visit. When you receive your new membership card, please place it in your wallet so that you will have it with you when you visit Ladew. We will no longer have member rosters in the Visitors Center or at event admission tables, so it is the member’s responsibility to provide status of membership upon arrival. If you have any questions, please call 410-557-9570, x.217. Thank you.
