The Volunteer Association of Sherman Library & Gardens presents a Summer Garden Party fundraiser on Saturday, August 28th from 4pm until 8pm throughout Sherman Gardens. The Summer Garden Party is the in-person piece of this year’s 25th Annual Newport Beach Virtual Garden Tour. Upon arrival, guests will receive a map guiding them to all of the Garden Party highlights which include:

Artists in the Garden – Hand-selected, local, artists, who serve as our “Artists in the Gardens” for the Garden Tour, will be painting throughout Sherman Gardens during the party. Many of their original works will be there for sale with proceeds benefiting Sherman Library & Gardens

Garden Party Hat Contest – Guests are invited to enter the Garden Party Hat Contest upon arrival! Winners for Best Garden- Themed Hat, Best DIY/Handmade Hat, and Best Hat & Garden Ensemble will be chosen by three impartial judges from Orange Coast Magazine, Recycled Rags in Corona del Mar, and South Coast Plaza’s Stylist Program.

Bouquet Bar – Select from a variety of blooms and create a custom bouquet to take home. Sherman Gardens’ certified floral designer Dawn Mones will be on-hand to assist guests with their selections.

Posey Frame – Pose for pics behind an elaborate frame of flowers created by Sherman Library & Gardens’ horticulturists. The Posey Frame will be located in the Succulent Garden.

Silent Auction & Raffle – Win unique gifts and experiences donated by local merchants and restaurants. A special silent auction offering is the “Table for 12” dining experience. The winning bidder and 11 friends will experience a four-course dinner with wine pairings, created by Cultivar Executive Chef Jessica Roy. Uniquely served in the Formal Dining Room – part of Sherman Library & Gardens’ greenHOUSE summer exhibit.

Live music, delicious food, a no-host bar and much, much more!

Tickets to the Summer Garden Party are $50 for Members and $60 for Non-Members. Make yourself at home in our summer exhibit called greenHOUSE: a plethora of ‘living rooms’ with a botanical twist, on display throughout the Gardens. Proceeds from this event support children’s education programs at Sherman Library & Gardens.
