Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is truly an exceptional place. Here you can walk garden pathways surrounded by the wonders and magnificence of nature, talk to connoisseurs in horticulture and conservation science, view inspiring art, see butterflies and birds at every turn, take classes on everything from photography to grafting and eat good food.
Another distinctive feature of this fabulous garden are the special events and festivals that take place. Food is a star in these events and we always go to savor the various treats that come from all over Miami. Among the festivals are:
- Food and Garden Festival
- Mango Festival
- Chocolate Festival
- Bird Festival
- Edible Garden Festival
- Afternoon Tea.
The festivals such as the International Mango Festival and the International Chocolate Festival are more than just spectacular events; they also have an education component with local and global experts giving lectures, talks and classes. Fairchild is also a cultural leader in the community. The garden also stages terrific art exhibitions and concerts each year.
Conservation, education and food; all in one place. Check out the Events Calendar for dates.
