Reservations required. Tickets start at $600.

Heart Of The Sonoran

Dinner on the Desert 2015 celebrates the Desert Botanical Garden and the heart, el corazón, of the Sonoran Desert, its essence, culture and beauty. The evening begins in Ottosen Entry Garden with a signature cocktail and warm welcome by Chair Carole Kraemer. Enjoy the setting sun as you stroll through the new Desert Terrace Garden and Jan and Tom Lewis Desert Portal on your way to Dorrance Hall. Savor sumptuous hors d’oeuvres while you bid on distinctive plants, pots and garden art, plus unusual and exciting experiences. The magical outdoor setting of the Garden is the stage for your evening of elegant regional cuisine.


Dinner on the Desert proceeds support the Garden’s research, conservation, exhibition and environmental education programs, nurturing respect and appreciation for our unique Sonoran Desert home.
