Special Event Ticketing for Festival Members

The Missouri Botanical Garden offers members at the Festival level free tickets to a variety of events. For weekend festivals like Japanese Festival and Best of Missouri Market, advance tickets are not required. Simply present your current Festival member card at entry for free entry for up to six adults and any children in your party.

For events that have timed and dated tickets, we recommend Festival members order their tickets at least three business days in advance to ensure availability. To request complimentary tickets in advance, have your membership card handy and follow the instructions below.
