Festival attendees will have exclusive access to Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden for the day. The entire 86 acres will be open for self-guided tours and exploration. RSABG members can receive a discount code by contacting The Garden development office @ firstname.lastname@example.org or (909) 625-8767 ext 221 (4 ticket max).
The Garden is a living museum, much different from a park or other recreation area, so personal food, glass bottles, and animals (with the exception of identified service animals) are not allowed. We do encourage bringing refillable bottles of water for personal hydration.
