Join the Celebration at the Antique Garden Furniture Fair's Preview Party and Collectors’ Plant Sale










The New York Botanical Garden will kick off one of the most anticipated events of the spring, the Antique Garden Furniture Fair: Antiques for the Garden and the Garden Room Preview Party and Collectors' Plant Sale, on Thursday, May 4. Celebrated Designer Chairman, Bronson van Wyck, will create a design based on a painting by Édouard Manet's Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (Luncheon on the Grass). Take part in a special benefit that attracts over 600 stylish guests and enjoy live music, signature cocktails and light fare, and preview the oldest and most beautiful collections of antiques, garden furniture, and architectural artifacts in the country. Named “Best in America” by experts, this spectacular annual show features the nation’s leading garden antique dealers offering unique items of the highest quality and provenance.

The Collectors' Plant Sale will once again present the most incredible rare and exotic plants available. The Preview Party will also offer exclusive items for bid during the Silent Auction. All proceeds from the Preview Party and Collectors' Plant Sale directly support the work of the curators and gardeners who are responsible for making The New York Botanical Garden one of the most important horticultural showplaces in the world.


Please be sure to purchase Preview Party tickets in advance to access the finest decorative pieces and plants the weekend has to offer!
