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
