Save the Date for our EXTRA SPECIAL
19th Annual Gala in the Garden
Saturday, September 8, 2018


We are busy preparing for what will be the best Gala in the Garden EVER including:

  • Food, wine and spirits served throughout the meandering pathways
    of the Garden
  • Musical groups and strolling entertainers performing along the way
  • Special floral creations and a lovely sunset sky adding to the magic of the evening
  • Long-time President & CEO Julian Duval, will be honored with the Paul Ecke, Jr. Award for his nearly 24 years of service at the Garden and contribution to the San Diego horticulture community

Don’t miss out on what our guests call ‘the best gala in town’ and your opportunity to honor Julian, who retires in January 2019.
