Join us for Tanabata, a Japanese festival celebrating the alignment of two stars normally separated by the Milky Way. Hosted in partnership with the Japan-America Society of Alabama and the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we invite you to hang a special wish on tanzaku (colorful paper strips) in the Bamboo Grove in our Japanese Garden.
During the celebration, enjoy a tea ceremony demonstration by Urasenke Birmingham Association and the beautiful bonsai display by Alabama Bonsai Society!
Become a Friend of the Gardens and join us in our mission to protect, nurture, and share the wonders of Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Thank you for your support!
