From Cuba to Mexico, from Puerto Rico to Peru, savor the flavors of Latin America at The Gardens’ Annual Gala Fundraiser, Fiesta Nueva!

Join us on Sunday, May 6th for an afternoon garden party on the beautiful, flower-filled grounds of The Gardens at Heather Farm. Guests will enjoy a variety of Latin American-inspired appetizers, refreshing beverages and live salsa music while celebrating spring in the garden and raising funds for The Gardens’ nonprofit programs.

At Fiesta Nueva, we’re bringing the spirit of some of Latin America’s most iconic cities to Walnut Creek, where you’ll feel as though you’re sipping margaritas in Cabo, savoring ceviche in Lima, trying tasty tostones in San Juan, grabbing some gaucho-style steak in Buenos Aires, and salsa dancing through the streets of Havana.
