It’s the Roaring 20s, but make it East Dallas.
The Arboretum is hosting its fourth-annual Food and Wine Festival later this month, and the theme is “A Gatsby Garden Soiree.” Period-appropriate clothing is encouraged but not required.
Wine, provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, will be sourced from about 15 wineries, and food will be offered from restaurants around the Metroplex. Food stations will be set up throughout the garden, offering delectable bites from the culinary minds behind Empire Baking Company, Cane Rosso, Carte Blanche and more. See a full list of participating restaurants here.
Festivities last 7-9 p.m. June 10. Tickets cost $125 (or $99 for members) and include a small glass logo wine goblet. Purchase tickets here.
In addition to the soiree, the Arboretum is hosting a farmers market-style Garden Market, where visitors will be able to purchase products from dozens of local vendors. Access to the market, which is open June 12-13 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., is included with a membership or general garden admission.
The Dallas Arboretum is located at 8525 Garland Road. Face coverings are no longer required outside or inside facilities there, but social distancing will be in place at the soiree.
