The Northwest Flower & Garden Show returns to the Washington State Convention Center in February, 2017, and once again the Arboretum Foundation will kick off the show with its annual Opening Night Party & Auction.
Please join us on Tuesday, February 21, from 5 to 9:30 p.m., for a festive dinner, silent and live auctions, and an intimate preview of the Garden Show’s stunning food-themed display gardens. All proceeds benefit the Arboretum.
This year our party—and our display garden—is inspired by hanami, the lively Japanese picnic celebration of cherry blossom viewing. It will also honor the beauty and legacy of the Seattle Japanese Garden at the Arboretum. Celebrate the beginning of season with friends and food at Hanami—Savoring Spring. Kanpai!
5:00 PM Reception and libations
5:30 PM First look at the 2017 display gardens
6:45 PM Seated dinner and program
8:30 PM Gardens re-open for viewing
Festive dress and Japanese fashion encouraged! All proceeds benefit the Arboretum!
