Rhapsody in Bloom

Garden Gala

Event Discontinued

Our annual Rhapsody in Bloom garden gala has been a summer tradition at the Gardens for over 30 years. Through the decades, this event has raised significant funds to help Olbrich remain free and accessible to all, while providing a way for our visitors, members, and loyal donors to engage with our mission of connecting people with plants.

We are incredibly grateful to all the area businesses, families, and individuals who have given us years of friendship and support through this event.

The Gardens are ever-growing, evolving, and changing. In 2019, as Olbrich undergoes its first major expansion since 1991, Olbrich staff plan to use this time to regroup and refresh some of the Gardens' programming.

Though Rhapsody in Bloom has been a wonderful opportunity for fundraising, friend-raising, and simply taking in the summer beauty and tranquility of the Gardens, the time has come to explore new ways to engage an increasingly diverse demographic of visitors and donors.

We're excited to share some new summer programming with you come Spring 2019!

 

Thank you to our 2018 Rhapsody in Bloom Sponsors!
