Rhapsody in Bloom
Saturday, June 18, 2016
5 - 10 p.m.
Some people march to a different drummer - and some people polka!
Surprises to delight the senses will abound at Olbrich Botanical Gardens’ annual garden party, Rhapsody in Bloom.
Celebrate all-things-Wisconsin - with a twist! Prepare to be transported to a modern interpretation of our Olde Worlde heritage. Sip on an Old Fashioned while tasting delectable treats, and enjoy an unprecedented evening of Wisconsin delight!
In keeping with tradition, our evening begins with hors d’oeuvres, music and live performers in the Gardens. We continue the magic with dinner and dancing under beautiful white tents as the sun sets over Lake Monona. All the while, you and your guests will be surrounded by the beauty of Madison’s very own award-winning public gardens.
Purchase individual tickets for $135 or a table of 8 for $1,000.
Reservations are required by Friday, June 10, 2016. Call 608-246-5616 to make a reservation.
Themed Attire Encouraged - Join the polka-dot palooza and accessorize or dress in your favorite polka-dot patterned duds!
