 Celebrate The Season

Celebrate The Holidays With Us at Memphis Botanic Garden

As Memphis’ hometown business source for office supplies and more, we’ve been able to create ties with many community organizations and make a difference, especially during the holiday season.

If you didn’t already know, our president Chris Miller has been a proud supporter (and neighbor) of the Memphis Botanic Garden and became the secretary for the garden’s executive board back in August. Yuletide is proud to sponsor Holiday Wonder at the Garden and Snowy Nights. Here are some details on when you can visit and what’s new this year.

About Holiday Wonders at the Garden

Holiday Wonders takes place in the northwest corner of the garden and includes interactive activities, interesting lighting, music, food, beverages, and more. The event runs select evenings now through December 30, with doors opening each night at 5:30 p.m. Click here for more information on how to get your tickets and find out what nights Holiday Wonders at the Garden will be running. The event is rain or shine, unless there is severe weather affecting the Memphis area.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, but they could sell out. We recommend grabbing yours today. Please bring an unwrapped toy with you to family night.
