Green since 1939, the Desert Botanical Garden is available for day and evening events. When you hold your event with us, you are supporting a nonprofit organization whose mission for the community is to advance excellence in education, research, exhibition, and conservation of desert plants of the world with emphasis on the Southwestern United States. The Garden features 6 venues that can accommodate from 5 - 500 guests and is also available for buy-outs.
We invite you to tour Desert Botanical Garden and discover our indoor and outdoor spaces which include open-air pavilions, scenic courtyards and historic settings. Once you have seen the beauty of the Garden, you will know why it's a "natural" choice for both business and networking events. Picture your next business meeting, board retreat, or conference in one of our unique conference rooms, auditorium or hall. Chart a new course as your group enjoys team-building activities, breakout sessions, lunch, sit-down dinner or cocktail party set outdoors amongst our exotic collection of desert flora.
Our experienced on-site venue planners will work closely with you to customize your event with private guided tours, desert activities, and personal touches. You can create your own customized menu from our preferred list of caterers. Complimentary parking and admission for your guests is also provided for your convenience. We look forward to creating a unique and memorable experience for your guests. The Garden is centrally located in Papago Park, just minutes from Downtown Scottsdale.
