The Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival

Purchase your passport for the Dallas Arboretum’s first ever international culinary adventure.


Thursday, March 16, 2017


For the first time ever, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is designing and hosting its own festival to celebrate delicious, high-quality food and wine from a host of cultures, set against the backdrop of 500,000 spring blooming bulbs during the spring festival Dallas Blooms, "the best spot this side of Holland to see beautiful flowers," according to Southern Living Magazine.


This festival was born out of the close work done during the planning and development of A Tasteful Place--a pioneering, in-construction food and herb garden that is set to open in the fall of 2017--and the relationships we have developed with some of the best chefs in the region. We became excited about creating a luxurious festival to demonstrate the connection between nature, gardens, and the food we eat.

This premier, spring social event will feature savory delicious bites made by award-winning chefs from many fine restaurants around the metroplex. Sample hundreds of fine wines and craft beers, and end the evening with dessert and coffee and special concert. The cuisine will focus on five regions and types of dishes:

  • American Bistro
  • Mediterranean
  • Pan Asian
  • South American
  • Desserts from around the world

Fine, premium beverages are provided courtesy of Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits.
