Events in the Gardens

Greensboro Beautiful has developed a series of thematic events in Greensboro’s public gardens. These events were created in an effort to

  • attract more people and increase visitation to the gardens,

  • provide increased visibility for Greensboro Beautiful and its work in both the gardens and throughout the community,

  • utilize the gardens as event venues to showcase the richness of talent within our community and region.

Each event features local artists, musicians, horticulture and nature education, children's art and gardening activities, family games, food vendors, and fun for the whole family.
As a non-profit, volunteer organization, Greensboro Beautiful relies on private funding from businesses, individuals, and community organizations to support each of the garden events as well as its many other projects and programs in the community. The garden events are funded by private donations to Greensboro Beautiful from the community, with promotional support from 88.5 WFDD Public Radio for the Piedmont. Admission is free to all events. You can help ensure that these events continue and remain free. A number of sponsorship opportunities are available at each event. If you would like to help ensure that garden events continue for the enjoyment of our whole community, please click here to make a donation.
