Following recommendations from federal and state officials for the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for our employees and guests, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will continue its closure through May 31. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

Bash at the Barn

Bash at the Barn 2020 is the Conservatory’s 17th annual tasting event. Held at the beautiful Wells Barn and surrounding grounds, the event brings together 500+ corporate and community leaders with emerging professionals for a rustic-meets-refined evening in support of the Conservatory. Bash at the Barn features bites from top Columbus restaurants, signature cocktails, fine wines and local craft beers, along with live music and a fantastic silent auction.

Funds raised through Bash at the Barn benefit the Conservatory’s horticulture programs and community outreach initiatives, cultivating a closer connection between people and the natural world. From nature-based early childhood programs and extensive plant collections in our gardens and biomes, to the sprawling Children’s Garden and immersive horticulture displays, the Conservatory creates opportunities to explore, connect and marvel at the natural world.
