Indulge in a light sampling of delights from Green Bay area restaurants and caterers, and listen to tunes by Nettle Hill. Stroll through the lush landscape, sip signature cocktails, wines, and brews, and soak in more than 300,000 spring blooms.

Make sure you stop by our DIY Botanical Cocktails station (in partnership with the NEW Herb Society)!

The Garden will close to the General Public at 4 pm. Ticket holders can enter the Garden starting at 4:45 pm.
