Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ 2019 Orchid Ball:  Gauguin’s Sunset in Paradise will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019.

Celebrating its 38th year, the Orchid Ball is a highlight of the Sarasota social season.

Consider attending the 2019 Orchid Ball, where you will also have the honor of experiencing the opening night of Gauguin: Voyage to Paradise with an exclusive preview of the dynamic horticultural interpretation within the Conservatory, the Museum of Botany & the Arts, and the Gardens.

Proceeds from the Orchid Ball support Selby Gardens’ community education programs, international research, conservation, and world-class horticulture displays.  Through your support we hope to create awareness and encourage a passion for Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

The Orchid Ball begins at half past six in the evening with cocktails under the banyans, followed by dinner and dancing.

When the Orchid Ball ends, the celebration is just beginning!  Join us at the After Party at Michael’s on the Bay from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.  This exclusive event is available only to Orchid Ball ticket holders.

Black tie attire and sunset-inspired gowns.
