Rhapsody in Bloom

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Olbrich Botanical Gardens’ annual gala, Rhapsody in Bloom, has been a summer tradition for over 28 years! In the late 80’s, this outdoor garden party offered guests a picnic basket dinner and dancing under the stars until 12:30 a.m.!

From its humble beginnings, Rhapsody in Bloom has evolved in many ways though one aspect has remained the same - a shared love and desire to support Madison’s award-winning public gardens. In 2017, Rhapsody in Bloom will evolve once again, going back to the basics. Stay tuned for details on an exciting new format, we guarantee some BIG APPLES you won't want to miss!

Support the Gardens by becoming a Rhapsody in Bloom sponsor!
