Garden of Fools

  • Slider Image


Saturday, August 3, 6:30 p.m.

BCA Alley

Featuring Mikeala Davis & DJ Lee J

Who does this? Ask famed Burlington creator Lee Anderson to take a downtown alley and turn it into a garden party. Then invite classically trained, alt-driven, harp playing, lyric superstar Mikaela Davis to perform in said alley. Finally, serve pleasant garden drinks. Shake. Serve. Enjoy.

This may sound impossible, but at the Festival of Fools, we strive for life outside of the box. Speaking of shake, serve and enjoy …what sponsor can do that and also lives outside the box? Hendrick’s Gin of course – ‘undeniably peculiar, utterly delicious.’

Then there’s the environmental designer Lee’s take on this Garden of Fools:

Oh, to be fully a fool in this folly garden! Oh, to be a bee in the bush extracting the berry essence! Let’s frolic, shall we? While the harp plays and the spirits pour, let’s linger! The begonias are begging you, buttercup! Queen Ann is putting on a lacey lily number! 

A papier-mâché leisure palace is near and here, for you! Crocus as you are, leaf as you became. 

How does YOUR gardenia grow, Fool?

Join us for this magical experience on this mid-summer night in Burlington.

You can also catch Mikaela Davis with Dan Deacon at the Fools After Party show at Club Metronome (Saturday, 9 p.m. Show / 8:30 p.m. Doors. Ticketed).
