Join us on Friday, May 5, 2023, to celebrate the 22nd annual Les Chapeaux dans le Jardin, lovingly known as Hat Day! Under the leadership of our 2023 Hat Day Chair, Nancy Russo, this annual spring soiree promises an elegant celebration of flowers and fashion, while raising critical funds to support the Conservatory’s educational mission.

The annual Hat Day luncheon is one of Columbus’ premier social traditions of the year,
and the Conservatory’s signature spring fundraising event. More than 550 guests gather
under a grand marquee in the beautiful gardens, adorned in their chapeaux, to enjoy an
afternoon of fun, celebration and philanthropy.

Sponsorships for Hat Day 2023 are now available, and are the best way to secure a table at this popular event! For more details or to secure a table, view our Sponsorship Brochure or contact Naomi Merino at or 614-715-8041.
