Special Events

The Friends of the Domes holds several events every year as fundraisers for the Domes:

  • Ghosts Under Glass (Halloween Event) Last Friday in October
  • New Year's Eve (an annual family event) December 31
  • Valentine Event - February 14
  • Art in the Green (Two-day art festival in the Domes and the Greenhouse Annex) May

These events simply couldn't happen without our vital volunteer base. The Domes wouldn't be the Domes without the fun and the funds that these events generate. Not only will you be providing a much-needed service to the Domes - you will have a wonderful time in the process.
