Daffodil Day - April 14 (12:00 pm entry)


Daffodil Day is a decades-old tradition in Summit when visitors to the Arboretum have an opportunity to enjoy one of the largest daffodil collections in New Jersey – over 50,000 bulbs in bloom in the Arboretum's glacially carved Daffodil Bowl! And this year is extra special as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary as a public arboretum.

This year as we celebrate our 50th anniversary we are taking it back to the 1970's with flower power! The day’s activities will include spring-themed games and crafts, story and history trails, art, music, food and market vendors, and of course, the Green Goats will be here. Feel free to come in your vintage threads, tie-dye t-shirts, and bell bottom denims! The day is going to be outta sight!

Staggered entry times will be at 11:00 am, 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm. Please be sure to sign up for the time slot you prefer, as changing will be based on availability. This event is rain or shine. No refunds.

Advanced registration is highly encouraged. Online registration closes on Friday, April 12 at 2:00 pm. Please note that tickets purchased at the door will be $15/non-member.
