Moon Over Maclay 2018

Sunday October 21st, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Though we may find ourselves in the midst of the summer doldrums, here’s something to cool you off a bit.

Close your eyes and imagine that you are sitting on a blanket or a folding chair on the lawn in front of the historic Maclay House on the shore of Lake Hall. The moon is shimmering off the lake and the sound of smooth jazz fills the air. The contents of your picnic basket and your cooler are spread out in front of you - and yes, there’s a cool breeze blowing…

That wasn’t just a dream or a vision that you just had! No, it was a preview of 9th Annual Moon Over Maclay jazz concert set for Sunday, October 21st from 6-9 pm at Maclay Gardens State Park.

So, mark your calendars now for another fabulous evening that will include the spooky and always entertaining Scarecrows In The Gardens which are created by area youth groups and businesses. All of the above is presented by the non-profit Friends of Maclay Gardens in support of Maclay Gardens State Park.

Thank you from the Friends of Maclay Gardens

The Friends of Maclay Gardens thank all of you who braved the threat of rain for attending the 2018 Tour of Gardens!

It turned out to be a glorious day for enjoying the diverse beauty of our 8 residential landscapes and the fabulous grandeur of the surrounding grounds of The Grove Museum. Your participation in the 24th annual Tour of Gardens will enable the Friends of Maclay to continue in their quest to provide for the needs of Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park.

Plans are already afoot for the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Tour of Gardens in May, 2019. A specific date will be announced shortly. In the meantime, the Tour of Gardens Committee will be looking for area landscapes and gardens to be featured on the 2019 Tour.

Please contact Gary Griffin at or at 850-228-1129 with any questions or recommendations.

Help us find those Tallahassee treasures that make the Tour of Gardens a lasting tradition! And finally, mark your calendars now for the Moon Over Maclay Jazz Concert on the spacious lawn bordering Lake Hall on October 21, 2018.
