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 favorite hats, to enjoy lunch with friends.

Proceeds benefit the Conservatory’s pre-K and K-12 education and outreach programs, which each year provide more than 25,000 students, of all ages and backgrounds, with opportunities for learning, discovery, and hands-on exploration.

Please join Franklin Park Conservatory and 2019 Hat Day Co-Chairs, Bobbi Lucas and Suzanne D. Lucas, to celebrate the 19th annual Les Chapeaux dans le Jardin on Friday, May 3.
