The Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens are the location for many concerts and special events. Every year the meadow is the venue for the Tribute to the Trees concert. The proceeds of this concert will provide funds for the completion of the Gardens’ Master Plan, annual maintenance within the Gardens and the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens’ Endowment. Held annually in June, Tribute to the Trees features the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra and includes a gourmet supper enjoyed alfresco. For detailed information and to purchase tickets, please click to view our Tribute to the Trees webpage.
The Botanical Gardens annual Photo Contest invites area photographers to capture the beauty of the Gardens throughout the year. The contest is open to all ages and concludes with a Gallery Showing in the fall. For more information and to enter, please click to view our Photo Contest webpage.
Oktoberfest sadly was cancelled again in 2016 but hopefully will return this year. Keep on the look out for information so you can join us for dinner, dancing, and dessert at the Dunsmuir Community Building (across the parking lot from the ball field) at 4835 Dunsmuir Avenue. What a delicious way to usher in Harvest time and support the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens! Please click Oktoberfest for more information!
