South Coast Botanic Garden Presents Gnome Sweet Gnome Father’s Day Weekend!

South Coast Botanic Garden Presents Gnome Sweet Gnome Father’s Day Weekend!

Palos Verdes homes owners can enjoy some Father’s Day fun by visiting the South Coast Botanic Garden for their ‘Gnome Sweet Gnome’ Father’s Day weekend celebration from June 18, through June 20, 2021.

This is your opportunity to show the dads in your life that you love them like gnome-body else! There will be gnomes hidden throughout the Garden for a fun scavenger hunt, and you’ll need to roam to find the gnomes! It also happens to be National Gnome Day (yes, it’s a real thing) on June 21, so your visit can be in honor of both holidays!

If gnomes aren’t really your dad’s thing, perhaps he might enjoy The Bar Society, Inc. Father’s Day Weekend Event. They will be selling craft beer and cocktails as well as charcuterie boards. The bars will be open Friday & Saturday for Happy Hour from  3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The locations of the bars will be announced as you enter the garden, and you can consume any food or beverages while seated in one of the designated picnic areas. Both the drinks and the boxes are available while supplies last.

June is a magical time in the Garden with the Bohannon Rose Garden continuing to bloom into summer and the Lavender Garden beginning to bloom as well. It’s a must-visit time in general, but celebrating dad here will make it all the more special.

Tickets to the ‘Gnome Sweet Gnome’ Father’s Day Weekend are the same as regular Garden Admission. Cost is free for Members and $15 for Adults, $11 for Seniors (62 and over) and Students (with ID), $5 for Children ages 5 – 12, and free for Children 4 and under.
