Festivities are hosted year-round in three exclusive locations:

  1. Make your party an adventure at the Children’s Adventure Garden! Party goers will enjoy navigating their way through a world of mazes, larger-than-life flowers, and garden trails as they explore the wonders of science and nature. Nestled on a hilltop is your private party hideaway, Adventure Point, where everyone participates in a craft activity and pots up a plant to take home.

  2. Conservatory GreenSchool Weekends, Winter

    Explore the biodiversity of tropical plants while hiking through the Conservatory’s rainforest galleries. Guests will participate in a scavenger hunt and then meet back in the private GreenSchool to share their findings. Kids create their own personal rainstick and pot up a tropical plant to take home.

    Holiday Train Show® Weekends; November–January

    Your guests can skip the lines and be taken on a walkthrough of the annual Holiday Train Show®. With a garden instructor leading the way, kids can gaze upon the locomotives zooming along tracks and across bridges. Next, the group zigzaggs through the wild rain forest where to explore the biodiversity of plants as they hike through the layers of the tropics. Fun and educational seasonal festivities takes place in the private Conservatory GreenSchool.
