Tohono Chul Gardens, Galleries & Bistro is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) botanical garden and nature preserve. We open our gardens to the public to celebrate special occasions and enjoy the beauty of the gardens in addition to our mission of promoting the nature, art and culture of the Sonoran Desert. Although thousands have happily celebrated special occasions in our gardens and Garden Bistro, the Park does not employ event staff. The Garden Bistro is a separate entity from the Park and holds the food and beverage license for the gardens. No outside food is allowed.
