In-person tickets are SOLD OUT, but there is a special opportunity AVAILABLE TO LIVESTREAM the show at 7pm on Thursday, November 3. Your $35 virtual ticket means you can still see the 15 show-stopping botanical looks come down the runway, and watch an amazing performance by Hiplet hip-hop ballerinas! And your ticket supports free nature education programs in Garfield Park.
