Special Events at Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens

CGBG Spring Plant Sale

Saturday, April 19, 2014
9 am to 1 pm

The threat of frost is long gone here in the Lowcountry (finally!). It's time to expand your garden with new plants from our annual plant sale. Browse the tables and turf by the Lakeside Pavilion for various warm-season herbs, annuals or perennials to purchase. These plants were propagated and grown out by CGBG staff and local area Master Gardeners as well as more specialty plants that we have in our garden collections. No charge to attend. More ->

Sunday Supper in the Strawberry Patch

Sunday, April 27, 2014
5 to 7 pm

At the usual height of the strawberry-picking season, join us for this 20th annual traditional Sunday supper at the Lakeside Pavilion. The meal culminates with a fresh strawberry shortcakedessert from fruits harvested from the field at CGBG. This year's supper is by Chef Nick Mueller. Silent auction tables offer a wide array of items, and all proceeds benefit the Friends of the Coastal Gardens -- the non-profit supporter of the expansion efforts at the botanical gardens. Cost is $30 per person, $15 per child age 12 and under.

The Garden Party
& Art Auction

Friday, May 9, 2014
7 to 10 pm

Join us in the beautifully decorated Cottage Garden for our annual Garden Party and Art Auction.

Bid on amazing and original works of art by some of the Coastal Empire's leading artists. All proceeds benefit CGBG and the Coastal Art Association. Reservations are mandatory and cost is $50 per person (does not include auction items). Please call (912) 921-5460 for reservations.
Gazing in the Garden

A Saturday in June
7 to 10 pm

Gazing in the Garden is in association with the Oglethorpe Astronomical Association and is a night of skygazing. As always, a classic 1950s sci-fi movie begins before the stargazing. Be prepared for less-than-ideal acting and effects in the movie, but know telescope views of the rising moon and stars await you on the Great Lawn. We anticipate the summer stargazing event to be a Saturday night in early June. Check back later this spring for the precise date.

Fall Festival

Saturday, October 4, 2014
9 am to 3 pm

The autumnal equinox has just occurred and summer's heat has waned. Plant and craft vendors, pumpkin patch, free educational sessions and trolley tours return to CGBG!
