Bash at the Conservatory

Join us for a fresh, socially distanced take on the Conservatory’s beloved Bash at the Barn event! With health and safety measures top-of-mind, this year’s Bash moves from The Wells Barn to the entire Conservatory, where guests can explore ten acres of lush outdoor gardens, engaging exhibitions and three acres of indoor gardens filled with beautiful plant life from around the world. Your Bash experience is complemented by drinks and gourmet picnic fare from local establishments, a silent auction, and live entertainment.

Over the last year, the mental, physical and emotional benefits of time spent in nature were keenly felt. Proceeds from Bash benefit the Conservatory’s horticulture, education, and community outreach programs, cultivating a closer connection between people and the natural world—just when those connections are needed most.

Your Bash ticket includes two drink tickets and a gourmet picnic meal, supporting our local food scene. Choose from three options:

  1. Seasonal Summer Picnic Spread – Milo’s Catering
    Cheese, charcuterie, accompaniments; picnic fried chicken (served chilled); seasonal potato salad; roasted & chilled vegetables with garlic herb aioli; biscuit with seasonal jam
  2. No-Fish Fry, Cajun Sides & Cornbread – Willowbeez SoulVeg (Vegan / Gluten-Free)
    Seasoned banana blossom, beautifully breaded; cajun slaw with
    shredded kale, cabbages, carrots, sweet-tangy dressing; gluten-free cajun pasta salad with broccoli, grape tomatoes, bright-smoky dressing; cornbread
  3. Classic Refectory Picnic – The Refectory
    Chilled poached salmon, saffron vinaigrette; fresh sweet corn salad, champagne vinaigrette; fresh green bean salad with shallot, feta cheese, green peppercorn dressing.

Connect your company brand with the Bash! Sponsorships are available, $500 – $10,000.
