Ballet Folklorico dancers at Celebramos

Botanic Garden Honors Latin American Culture & Heritage with ¡Celebramos!

English & Spanish versions

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden invites guests to join us for the third annual ¡Celebramos! A Celebration of Latin American Culture & Heritage, from Sept. 8 through Oct. 15. This four-week extravaganza will include 18 separate events, including dance and musical performances, art exhibitions, food, fashion, shopping opportunities, and special after-hour events.

New offerings this year include a Latin American Flag Parade featuring Ballet Folklorico, a Tequila & Margarita Festival (21+ only), and a Family Fun Day that will top off the series of events. All events have been designed to celebrate Latin America’s vibrant cultures and traditions.

“¡Celebramos! is a wonderful showcase of the richness of Latin American culture, “ said Estela Martinez-Stuart, FWBG Board Member and community leader. “It’s amazing that the Garden is providing opportunities for our community to come together to learn and share through art, entertainment, and traditions in such a beautiful setting.”

Festivities begin on Sept. 8, with an After Hours in the Garden: ¡Celebramos! Kickoff Event. Most daytime events are free with Garden admission. After-hour events may require an additional fee.

DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS: A tribute to Día de Los Muertos will take place Oct. 28-Nov. 2. Guests will be able to enjoy more than 46,000 marigolds (Taishan Orange & Coco Gold) that will be “rolled out” to create a show-stopping “carpet” down the Rose Garden stairs. These strongly scented flowers are believed to help deceased ancestors find their way home to the ofrendas prepared for them in conjunction with this special day. Stay tuned for more information about this spectacular floral display.
