Festival of Lights Gala 2019

Saturday, November 23
6:00 to 9:00PM

Each year we hold a grand event to kick off the holiday season. We invite you to an exclusive viewing of the Gardens aglow during our annual holiday soirée. Let us toast to a great year, eat, drink, and be merry. The big tent will be transformed into a festive gathering place wrapped in a warm glow of red and gold, complete with music, drink, and sumptuous bites. This year we are adding spirited signature cocktails and an intriguingly interactive way to capture the memories. Radio Push and Pull (Erin Brazil, Laura Marone, and Chad Swimmer) is our musical act for this year's Gala, the trio will play a danceable mix of holiday music, salsa, jazz, and originals. Join us for an evening of laughter and good cheer! 

Tickets are $100 per person and include live music, food, cocktails, wine, beer, bubbly, a special preview of the lighted gardens, and the chance to win raffle prizes! All proceeds from this fundraiser event help to support Festival of Lights at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. 

Tickets are limited and sell fast! Purchased yours at The Garden Store or call 707-964-4352 ext 16.
