Community Day is the first Sunday of every month. Residents of Columbus and Franklin County receive free general admission. Community Days include access to the entirety of our gardens and collections and current daytime exhibitions. Admission to special engagements on select evenings (Chihuly Nights, Pumpkins Aglow, Conservatory Aglow) is not included.
More information on Conservatory offerings and ticketing is available below.
Tickets are made available on a monthly basis, typically in the week following the previous Community Day. Links can be found in the info box above and on the Select A Ticket page. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
Community Days are part of the Conservatory’s mission to make the gardens more accessible and reservations fill up quickly. This is where we need your help. To make sure Community Days stay true to their purpose, we ask that visitors please consider the following before reserving a Community Day visit:
1. If you are a member (members receive free admission every day) or have the means to support the Conservatory through admission, please consider visiting on a different day.
2. Before making a reservation, please make sure you can attend. Not showing up takes away an opportunity for someone who might not otherwise be able to visit.
3. Please cancel your reservation if you can no longer attend. We completely understand that plans change. We just ask that you let us know, so we can open our doors to another member of the community. To cancel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
