The 2021 event is tentative. As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, firmer details will become available. The below description applies to previous in-person events. 


Cocktails and music to support STEM education and research at the Center. The Danforth Center Young Friends host an unforgettable night of drinks, music, magic, and mingling. Party with the Plants gives attendees the chance to meet and socialize with the cutting-edge scientists of the Danforth Center in our beautiful building and prairie.
