Sunflower Series will return to State Botanical Garden for three concerts

The State Botanical Garden will host three ­performances during the 16th season of its Sunflower Concert Series. Held from 7-9 p.m. on a Tuesday in June, July, and August, the outdoor concerts on the lawn of the Flower Garden offer an eclectic mix of music.

Located at 2450 S. Milledge Ave, the botanical garden has partnered with the Music Business Program in UGA’s Terry College of Business to also present current and past students as opening acts for each concert.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Season passes also are available for purchase. Admission to each concert includes beverages and light snacks. For information or to purchase tickets, visit

The concert series will open June 14 with a performance by Klezmer Local 42, whose album of Jewish folk music, Fear of a Yiddish Planet, was released last year.

Randall Bramblett will perform July 12, and Five-Eight will headline the Aug. 23 concert.
