Spring Affair Preview Party

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lancaster Event Center, Lincoln, NE
The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum will kick off the 32nd annual Spring Affair plant sale with the highly acclaimed Preview Party on Friday, April 27th, 2018! The Preview Party is a great way to support tree planting and garden making across the state while giving you the ability to purchase plants prior to Saturday's plant sale. Ticket purchase to the Preview Party will include one meal voucher as well as entry into the sale. The meal includes a taco bar with Mexican-inspired appetizers and desserts. During the 6-8 p.m. meal, you can enjoy live music and a cash bar. The evening offers plenty of time to talk to fellow gardeners and leisurely browse tables of perennials, shrubs, trees, grasses, vines and annuals. Plant experts will be available all evening to help you find just the right plant for even the toughest spot. This annual event serves as an educational tool and a fundraising event for the ongoing growth of the Arboretum’s programs and affiliate gardens. Tickets are non-refundable.
