Flora Luna is a new way to experience the famous Rock City Gardens. It’s like visiting for the first time all over again. This one-of-a-kind experience held in the gardens at night will feature beautiful, colorful art installations, an original music score, and fantastic dining options. It’s an event designed for all the senses. I should know; I was there!  You can see it now through May 12, 2024 each evening.

This is a perfect event for all of you – bring the family, a date night, or a girl’s night out.

The Flora Luna Experience

We all know that Rock City Gardens is nothing short of breathtaking. However, the Flora Luna event aims to take the gorgeous garden and transform it into an elevated experience for all guests who take part. The experience pays homage to the area, and one of the founders, Frieda Carter, was the first to map out a trail for visitors to the gardens to follow. Visitors will find a giant red string ball and are encouraged to follow the string throughout the Gardens.
