Party prep: getting ready for our open house.

Sunset's campus undergoes a before-and-after makeover of a different kind in May: In the five days leading up to our Celebration Weekend extravaganza, our normally serene public garden and the nearby street become increasingly unrecognizable. About 200 tents (including our presentation stages and vendor booths) must be set up; about 20,000 welcome bags of goodies are assembled; and the finishing decorative touches will be put on this year's piece de resistance, the Sunset Breeze-house, a two-bedroom modular home completed in our parking lot. By the time we open the gates at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, our landscape will be ready for the festival. The garden draws visitors on weekdays year-round for a self-guided tour of our planting displays, but that weekend, tens of thousands will enjoy an entirely different kind of experience here. We welcome you to try both.

INFO: Our garden is open 9-4:30 Mon-Fri (except holidays and the week before and the week after Celebration Weekend). Visit or call 800/786-7375 for information.
