Bicentenary Day Celebration
About Bicentenary Day Celebration

Come and join us to celebrate our 200th anniversary!

We have a whole day of activities and events arranged for all the family to get involved in. The day will be a celebration of the Botanic Garden's community, featuring 'Bard in the Botanics', 'City Voice Choir', 'Barhulho Beat Drumming Group' and much, much more!

We are being joined by lots of other organisations too, all offering family activities with an environmental theme.
The day will also be an opportunity to look at the wonderful collections we have accumulated over the last 200 years, with opportunities to learn more about what we do and how to get more involved.

Other things to look out for will be our face painting stall, florists from Queen's Park Glasshouses and even cattle from Pollok Country Park!

Refreshments can be found at our tea room and kiosk, both of which will be open throughout the whole day.

Look forward to seeing you there!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bicentenary Day Celebration are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
