Opening Night Party Tickets Now On Sale!

Bright lights, big party!

Bright lights, big party!

Tickets for our 24th annual Opening Night Party at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show are now on sale. Enjoy a fabulous evening of delicious food, fine wines, live music, and silent auctions, and the opportunity to view the beautiful display gardens at the Garden Show the day before it opens to the public—all while helping us raise important funds to support Washington Park Arboretum.

Gardens Go Hollywood! In keeping with the theme of this year’s Garden Show—“The Silver Screen Takes Root: Gardens Go Hollywood”—the party will capture some of the glamour and magic of Tinseltown. Don’t miss your chance to walk the red carpet, pose for paparazzi, and gossip with your favorite Northwest horticultural celebrities. All the display gardens in the Garden Show have a movie theme—including the Arboretum’s display, “A Hobbit’s New Zealand Garden,” which pays homage to Peter Jackson’s new film and the New Zealand Forest being planted in the Arboretum in 2013.

Oh la la! Gardening superstar Ciscoe Morris will emcee this year’s auction Fund-A-Need, which will support the Arborist and Tree Care program at the Arboretum.

Tickets: Ticket prices vary from $75 to $500. You can purchase tickets online, by phone at 206-325-4510, or over the counter in the Arboretum Shop.
