GORGEOUS SETTING. AMAZING CAUSE.
Bouquets is Como Friends’ most spirited fundraiser for Como Park Zoo & Conservatory. Although the event is different this year, we have fresh new ways to raise a glass to celebrate and support this beloved community treasure.
The menu is full of fun and flavorful opportunities including Bouquets Live, an online program with zookeeper, gardener and wine talks; Bouquets Garden Stroll, an evening walk through the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory; and Bouquets-in-a-Box filled with curated wine, beer and treats. There’s even a Virtual Marketplace featuring our restaurant and brewery partners, and a fantastic silent auction.
Bouquets Live | Enjoy the beauty of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory from the comfort of your home! Tune in to this online program for gardener and zookeeper talks, wine and beer tips, animal ambassador visit and other surprises. You also get access to the online auction and the Bouquets Virtual Marketplace.
Donation of $25 is suggested but not required.
BOUQUETS GARDEN STROLL
Bouquets Garden Stroll | Want to feel the humidity of the Fern Room, smell the orchids, hear the Palm Dome fountain and see the stunning Sunken Garden? If so, the Bouquets Garden Stroll is for you. The limited capacity, after-hours experience includes a timed ticket to wander through the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory on a one-way path, and a treat to take home. Your ticket includes access to Bouquets Live, the online auction, and the Bouquets Virtual Marketplace.
Tickets are $50 per person. ($5 discount for Como Friends’ Members) Reservation times are available on a first come, first served basis. The Bouquets Garden Stroll may be modified if COVID-19 guidelines change.
Bouquets-in-a-Box | Purchase a Bouquets-in-a-Box ticket for a party kit filled with all the pieces needed to celebrate Bouquets at home. Geared for two people, each box contains specialty food items, fun beverages, activities for people of all ages, links to virtual wine or beer talks, and other surprises! Select the type of box depending on your own taste — wine, beer or alcohol-free/family friendly. Also included is access to Bouquets Live, the online auction, and the Bouquets Virtual Marketplace.
Interested in the all-inclusive experience? Upgrade to the VIP Bouquets-in-a-Box ticket. The party pack includes wine and beer, links to additional talks, and a special only-Como piece of animal or plant art.
