Things to do in May at San Diego Botanic Garden

Two Words We Love: ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Sale’!

Chocolate Festival: If you have never met a chocolate that you didn’t like, this is your day! San Diego Botanic Garden hosts its annual Chocolate Festival from 10AM to 4PM on Saturday, May 13. Enjoy the day relaxing in our beautiful garden oasis while sampling a wide variety of chocolates from more than a dozen vendors. Find something unique for your Mom (or yourself!) at the Garden’s Gift Shop or from one of our fantastic Chocolate Festival vendors. Enjoy delicious food, great music, and our Kidzone, where children can have fun making crafts and gifts for Mother’s Day. Visit for more information.
