April 14 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
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.
The day’s activities include spring-themed games and crafts, a story trail, music, food, market vendors, our current art exhibit, and of course, the Green Goats will be here.
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.
