2023 was an incredible year at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens. From our exciting new classes, to our Holiday Magic events, we were able to delight and educate guests of all ages, from all across the world. Looking ahead to 2024, we couldn’t be more thrilled about what is in store! This coming year, we are happy to announce fun, educational events like our 15th Annual Orchid & Garden Festival, a new Bonnet House Speaker Series, and relaxing yoga classes on the veranda.
This year, Bonnet House is once again excited to announce our 15th annual Orchid & Garden Festival . This extremely popular event will take place this Spring on Saturday, April 6th & Sunday, April 7th. During this popular event, guests will have the opportunity to learn more about orchids and find beautiful new specimens to add to their collections. Visitors should also be sure to stop by the Orchid Display House (part of the Shell Museum Complex) to see a sampling of Evelyn Bartlett’s original orchid collection.
In 2024, Bonnet House will also be hosting an educational speaker series starting on January 8th from 10:00-11:30 AM. These unique lectures will be available both in person and via Zoom. To kick off these lectures, we have invited Stephanie Brinez, Endangered Species Interventions Specialist with Bat Conservation International. She will be taking the time to discuss Bats At Bonnet House, and answer your questions. Registration for this event is required by January 6th at 2:30 PM.
Additionally, we will be continuing our Yoga On The Veranda event series into 2024. These classes will allow you to experience a tropical treat surrounded by the beauty of nature, with an all-levels, slow vinyasa yoga flow with a fun world-fusion music playlist! The January 5th session will sequence together your basic yoga poses with breathing techniques in a fluid, meditative, and invigorating way. Adventurous yogis are invited to try variations of postures as they are offered. Each student is encouraged to expand boundaries, and celebrate a fun and energizing flow practice. At the end of the class, we will invite you to settle into deep rest and guided relaxation in nature. Participants will also receive a cool-down aromatherapy refresher, inspirational message card, and warm tea to support your amazing day.
There is truly so much to look forward to in 2024 at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens. We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are able to visit us for some of our new and exciting upcoming events. To learn more, and plan your next visit to Bonnet House, click here , or call (954) 563-5393.
