SCG Kite Festival

For a fun day at the Garden, gather family and friends for our annual Kite Festival. Bring your own kite or buy an inexpensive one on site. Almost every afternoon a wonderful breeze on the ridge lets kites fly high — a great way to spend a sunny summer day. For details, download the festival flyer.

A Summer Evening in the Garden

Enjoy a delightful summer evening with Garden friends and Bamboo Circle members. Mingling begins in the courtyard at 5 pm with appetizers and wine, followed by a buffet at 6:30, then cultural entertainment and a brief program. Come to savor evening’s golden glow and to honor our Bamboo Circle members and support the Garden. Celebration tickets are complimentary for Bamboo Circle members.

Years from now, visitors to the garden will pass by this wall and be delighted to say, “Look, right there, those are my grandparents’ names – they helped build this garden.”
