Anniversaries in Bloom Gala at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

April 29, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Mark your calendar for a memorable Desert Gala evening of fine dining, amazing auctions, animal ambassadors, live music, and all things uniquely Desert Museum.

This year, in honor of Tucson’s designation as the first American City of Gastronomy, our region’s beautiful blossoming succulents and ancestral crops dating back 4,000 years will be featured — and will be interpreted with a delicious contemporary twist on the evening’s menu!

NOTE: Seating for this popular event is limited to 500 guests, and is usually reached long before the deadline for reservations on April 6th. Any reservations received after we reach 500 guests will be placed on a waiting list. Make your reservation today by contacting Camille Pons at 520-883-3055.
