The Northwest Flower & Garden Show returns to the Washington State Convention Center in February, 2016, and once again the Arboretum Foundation will kick off the show with its annual Opening Night Party & Auction.
Let us treat you to a fabulous evening of delicious food, wine bars, live entertainment, and alluring auctions. Enjoy 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.
Celebrating our natural heritage: The National Parks Service turns 100 next year. To mark the occasion, the Garden Show organizers have chosen the theme of America the Beautiful for the 2016 event.
Each of show’s 20 display gardens will pay homage to a treasured national park or landmark, including the Arboretum’s display, “The Hoh: America’s Rain Forest.”
