April 8, 2018   ~ Come and enjoy a tranquil afternoon in a beautiful hidden garden in northwest Fresno! The location is a secret, but will be revealed when you accept our invitation.

The Arne Nixon Center Advocates invite you to their 14th Secret Garden Party on Sunday, April 8, 2018 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Celebrate the joy of children's poetry in a lovely garden setting as we honor National Poetry Month in April and the new Young People's Poet Laureate, Margarita Engle.

This year's party supports the creation of a community mural designed by the award-winning illustrator, Rafael López. Come paint with us! Together, we will add beauty to a Fresno neighborhood. Date and location of mural creation coming.
