The Chicago Botanic Garden sets the stage for its 8th annual Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival. See the work of 95 unique artists in a pristine setting overlooking a lake, spectacular gardens and 385 acres of gardens. The artwork embodies a botanic theme, use or material. Entrance to the garden is free but parking is $30.

I also love the annual Chicago Botanic Garden Orchid Show that displays the beauty of 10,000 orchids in full bloom.
