Fête des Fleurs

Fête des Fleurs

For 35 years the Fête des Fleurs gala has been one of our community’s most elegant and loved events, considered by many as an “end of summer” tradition.

Fete Days of Giving


Thank you to all our generous donors who gave during the 2020 Fête Days of Giving and supported the core programming of Denver Botanic Gardens. Fête Days of Giving raised over $220,000 and exceeded its fundraising goal because of you!

We reached our goal thanks to dozens of generous donors. Thank you.
For our donors who made gifts over $300, Denver Botanic Gardens will host a thank you picnic for up to four people at the York Street location on September 14.

During these uncertain times, the Gardens is so much more than a beautiful place—it’s a cornerstone for many in our community. See below for the impact the Gardens’ core programs continue to make as a result of your generosity.
