Food and Wine/Beer Tasting Fundraiser

2020 and 2021 Primavera are POSTPONED.
We look forward to seeing you in 2022!

The UCR Botanic Gardens’ major fundraising event each year is Primavera in the Gardens, Riverside’s premiere food, wine, and craft beer tasting event. Proceeds from Primavera sponsorships and ticket sales provide critical support for educational programs, events, and enrichment activities we offer to community members of all ages, as well as for enhancement of our collection and gardens.

Primavera features many of Riverside’s finest restaurants and caterers providing appetizers and desserts, regional wineries and breweries serving wine and craft beer, and live music from local ensembles. In 2019 we celebrated the 21st anniversary of Primavera in the Gardens.

Primavera is typically held the Sunday after Mother's Day each year.
