Dinner on the Desert 2024 celebrates the Garden's natural and iconic beauty during its 85th anniversary year. Event co-chairs, Ursula Gangadean and Dr. Edgardo Rivera, look forward to welcoming guests to a memorable evening, with friends, family and colleagues.

With cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in hand, guests can bid on unique plants, pots and garden art, plus an array of exceptional and exciting experiences during the Garden's signature in-person silent auction.

The desert night sky and dramatic plant palette provides the perfect outdoor setting for a dinner that reflects the flavors of spring. A final farewell experience awaits guests, which promises to deliver a fun and flavorful departure.

Please join us at Dinner on the Desert and support Desert Botanical Garden as the global leader in desert plant conservation and its mission to advance excellence in education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants.
