Arboretum Special Events

Visit the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens all year long, but add these special events to your calendar to enjoy the Arboretum in whole new ways!
  • You'll discover hard-to-find perennials and native plants at the Spring Plant Sale.
  • Stems: A Garden Soirée is the party of the summer in our community.
  • There are family activities every month of the year. Check the calendar often.
  • Special exhibits are extra attractions scheduled throughout the year. Don't miss the Enchanted Forest exhibit of gnome and fairy homes along a woodland trail all summer long.
  • Enjoy wine tastings on the Terrace from April through September.
  • Botanical Brewfest is the most fun (and most beautiful!) beer tasting in the metro in October.
  • And the Luminary Walk - in its 18th year - is a holiday tradition for thousands. Join us on any one of 6 nights beginning Thanksgiving weekend.
