Ball Updates

As of August 25, 2021:

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is taking special precautions to keep guests and staff safe due to Covid. Weather permitting, the tent sides will be open and special filtration has been added as an additional safety measure. Attire for this year’s event is black tie optional. Following dinner, entertainers Musical Fantasy will take the stage in lieu of dancing. All guests are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19

For the safety of guests and staff, the Atlanta Botanical Garden will continue to monitor new developments regarding COVID variants and will keep you abreast of any adjustments we may need to make to the event. We hope we can count on your continued support of the event, which is so vital to advancing the Garden’s mission.


Our premier fundraising event, the Garden of Eden Ball is a not-to-be-missed gala. The fabulous evening begins with cocktails at sunset and continues with sumptuous cuisine followed by top-notch entertainment. Staged on the Great Lawn, this elegant affair attracts the city’s community, business and social leaders.  For questions, please contact Alysia Pearson at apearson@atlantabg.org.
