We appreciate your considering Denver Botanic Gardens for your event. By hosting your special event at the Gardens, you help support our varied public programming and activities.

While we do our best to accommodate all requests, please note that some dates, times and spaces may not be available due to numerous factors including, but not limited to, prior reservations or insufficient lead time. We will respond to inquiries made via email or phone to our sales representatives within two business days. Tours of our facilities are by appointment only. Site visits do not equate to an automatic reservation, so we ask that you do not send out any invitations, save-the-dates, or any other printed piece until you have a signed contract back from Denver Botanic Gardens.
