Pre-Bastille Day Party: French gypsy jazz, food, cocktails & fun

The UC Botanical Garden’s annual concert series is back! Enjoy a magical music experience this summer under towering redwoods in the Berkeley hills. We are proud to Stand for the Redwoods with Save the Redwoods League, celebrating 100 years of redwood forest protection.

Ticket includes admission to the Garden before closing at 5 pm. Shows will sell out – buy your tickets in advance!

Join the UC Botanical Garden for our annual celebration of Bastille Day with cocktails, sweet and savory French bites, and swinging French music. Enjoy petite fours and macarons as you peruse our silent auction of unique French themed items. All this while supporting the Botanical Garden and our mission of conservation, education and research. C’est magnifique!

Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California) playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artists from around the globe. The ensemble has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and their passion for their musical improvisation.

George Cole has a genre-spanning music career that ranges far and wide. Cole, the suave crooner with the golden pipes, is a six-string guitar slinger of the highest possible order. George is the bandleader for his Gypsy Jazz & Uptown Swing group and the current guitarist for the David Grisman Sextet.
