Gala at the Farm

The Gala in the Gardens, the Arboretum’s signature annual fundraising event, is back in person at the Farm at the Arb on June 16, 2022. 

Join us for an inspiring evening at the Arboretum featuring farm-to-table dinner, celebratory toast, and lively conversation with fellow Arboretum supporters.

Find out how our new Farm at the Arb sparks discovery by connecting people, the land, and the growing of food–and how you can expand its reach! 

Funds raised at the Gala are invested into the Arboretum’s 1,200 acres of gardens, plant and tree collections, model landscapes, natural areas, and miles of trails. Your support propels our mission to welcome, inform, and inspire almost 500,000 annual visitors through outstanding displays, protected natural areas, horticultural research, and education.

$525 Patron Individual  ($350  tax-deductible)
$3,500 Silver Table Sponsor ($2,100  tax-deductible)
