Twilight in the Garden is the annual gala to benefit Bartram’s Garden and the year’s largest fundraiser. Join us to celebrate this beloved public space and ensure its continued growth.

Join us for a festive night of great company, an unparalleled setting, and deep gratitude as we gather in honor of this legendary landscape. You and your guests will enjoy:

  • A magical choose-your-own adventure evening, with options for everything from sunset garden tours to cozy riverfront fire pits
  • Silent auction featuring travel, artwork, private experiences, and more!
  • Autumnal cocktails and seasonal treats

This year, we’re recognizing the healing effects of our natural world and celebrating three incredible proponents of public green spaces:
