Events in the Gardens

Greensboro Beautiful has developed a series of thematic events in Greensboro’s public gardens. These events were created in an effort to

  • attract more people and increase visitation to the gardens,

  • provide increased visibility for Greensboro Beautiful and its work in both the gardens and throughout the community,

  • utilize the gardens as event venues to showcase the richness of talent within our community and region.

Events Scheduled for 2021

Please note that all dates and events are tentative. With respect to precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be necessary for Greensboro Beautiful to revise either event dates or how the events are coordinated and presented to the community.
