Please join us for our first seasonal benefit dinner of 2021. Bring your pod and loved ones as we come together once again to celebrate spring outdoors in the Garden.

Upon arrival, your group will be presented with a red wagon containing your delicious meal along with a map to help you find your table in a surprise Garden location.

This special evening raises funds toward the resilience and stability of Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s collections and educational programs in 2021 and beyond. Due to COVID-19, BBG will not be hosting its annual gala. Spring Dinner in the Garden is the first of three intimate benefit dinners this year.

Tables seat six or ten guests and range from $2,000 to $6,000. A limited number of VIP tables for two are also available.

Tables are first come, first served, and will sell out. If you wish to pay by check, stock, or wire, please email us at [email protected], or call 718-623-7356 to reserve your table.

Festive botanical attire encouraged. Event is rain or shine.

If you cannot attend but would like to support Brooklyn Botanic Garden, please make a donation.


Safety is our priority. To preserve social distancing, the number of tables is limited and group size is capped at 10 people. Face coverings are required for all guests over age 2. BBG’s enhanced safety precautions are based on current City and State mandates and recommended guidelines. Staff members have been trained in New York State COVID-19 hygiene and social distancing protocols and wear face coverings while in public areas. As in any public outdoor setting, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19. By visiting BBG, you voluntarily assume such risks.
