We’re glad you are interested in celebrating your special day at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Unlike any other South Florida location, Fairchild is a beautiful botanical garden that showcases rare palms, cycads, flowering trees, vines, lakes and much more. Fairchild is a non-profit organization with the mission of promoting the conservation, use, study, understanding and enjoyment of tropical plants. Private events help support this mission.
