All aboard for a gala evening event that celebrates the romance of the rails amongst the lush forests and beautiful tropical plants of San Francisco’s 130-year-old crown jewel of Victorian architecture, the Conservatory of Flowers. On Wednesday, November 18, the Conservatory marks its special anniversary and the 2009 opening of its enormously popular holiday exhibition, the Golden Gate Express Garden Railway, with a festive evening event that features fine food, drink and a number of delightful San Francisco surprises.
The enchanting garden railway exhibition celebrates the city of San Francisco as model trains wend their way through a lush landscape of dwarf plants and zip past creatively crafted replicas of the city’s landmark buildings from Ghirardelli Square to the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower to Chinatown’s dragon gate. Debuting this year are six new landmarks including City Hall and Alamo Square’s famous Victorian Painted Ladies -- all set amongst miniature gardens and parks to create a magical setting for this special holiday attraction.
Gala guests can be the first to see The Golden Gate Express and have the rare chance to experience the historic Conservatory at night. Space is limited, so get your tickets now to get on track!
All proceeds benefit the Conservatory of Flowers’ youth environmental education programs.
