Let's face it. We are a public garden first, a venue second. Yet, events bring people to the beauty of the gardens, as well as bring much needed earned revenue to support our missions. Whether you want to have 1 wedding per weekend; 15 weddings in one day, or an outdoor music event, learn creative ways to use your beautiful spaces to make more money. Join individuals from a small, a medium, and a large garden to learn how they execute money-making events in their gardens. Hear firsthand how these gardens work with outside vendors on extremely busy days and co-exist with the public.
