28th Annual Garden Party to Fund Orange Avenue Gardens on Sept. 7

Orange Avenue gardens

Once a year, MainStreet hosts a Garden Party that raises funds to support revitalization and beautification projects. These include Coronado’s signature Orange Avenue Gardens, an award-winning trademark of our downtown. These 16 gardens represent MainStreet’s on-going commitment to beautify and enhance the color and vibrancy in the heart of town. The creation, installation, maintenance and replanting of this “sustainable” art is the responsibility of Coronado MainStreet, a non-profit organization dedicated to the health of our commercial areas. In addition, MainStreet remains a steadfast advocate for preserving Coronado’s charm, vitality and history.

This year the Party will be held on September 7 at The Garza Castro Family’s beautiful gardens at 708 A Avenue. They completed a whole house & garden renovation of this historic home. It is a beautiful homage to the classic Coronado home.

The friendly gathering will feature live music featuring local group The Sophisticats, a no-host bar, wine tasting, brew from Coronado Brewing Company and local Chefs serving their specialties. There will be a Silent Auction featuring donations from Coronado businesses.

The Hotel del Coronado is again a major sponsor of the Garden Party along with local restaurants, realtors, banks and merchants. The City-wide participation and support demonstrate how important our downtown is to the community.
