Holden Forest & Gardens Invites You to a Picnic in Support of Plants, Trees and the Benefits They Provide Northeast Ohio

Annual Summer Benefit Puts a Fun Spin on a Traditional Favorite

CLEVELAND, OH– You are invited to Northeast Ohio’s picnic of the summer at the Holden Arboretum on Saturday, July 10, 2021 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Twilight in the Whimsical Woods is Holden’s largest benefit of the year and helps to raise money for its mission to connect people with the wonder, beauty, and value of trees and plants, to inspire action for healthy communities. Tickets are on sale now at holdenfg.org or by calling Chris Keeney at (216) 707-2834.

This event is presented with generous support from Key Private Bank.


Twilight in the Whimsical Woods will take place throughout the arboretum grounds and feature a picnic dinner by A Taste of Excellence, music by Northeast Ohio artists including Thor Platter and The Cleveland Wind Trio, activities for adults and kids including craft stations and tarot card readings, and a first look at the new Fairy Doors: Magical Garden Gateways exhibit that will open to the public on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.

Proceeds from the event will support the People for Trees movement that aims to have 15,000 trees planted and cared for throughout Northeast Ohio by 2025 and to help ensure that the wonder and beauty of the Holden Arboretum and Cleveland Botanical Garden are available for all to enjoy.
