Food and Beverage

The food service style is self service and, in our efforts, to minimize waste menu offerings are portioned based on the number and type of tickets sold. Due to the nature of this event RBG may not be able to accommodate all dietary restrictions and allergies. Royal Botanical Gardens cannot be held responsible for any dietary restrictions that guests may have.

RBG will try to accommodate but cannot guarantee traces of such food are not present at the time of preparation. Please note that in compliance to the Health and Food Department regulations, NO outside food is permitted to be brought in and no left-over food is to be taken from the premises.

"Forever" Bouquets

Purchase a dried bouquet as an “add-on” during registration!

Bouquets are made up of various dried flora materials. RBG cannot guarantee the types of flowers used and therefore are unable to accommodate allergies and flower preferences. Bouquets will vary slightly in size and colour, but are approximately 10 inches from top to bottom. Bouquets are pre-made and wrapped with love by RBG’s Floral workshop volunteers. Bouquets may deteriorate over time, depending on environment kept. It is best to keep bouquets in dry environments that are free of dust.
