A Gatsby Garden Soirée

June 10
General Admission from 7–9pm

Calling all foodies and wine lovers! It’s time for the Dallas Arboretum’s fourth annual international culinary adventure. We are cooking up some exciting plans to bring you great wine from approximately 15 wineries, provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, and delicious bites from around the Metroplex, but due to COVID-19, we are making some changes in 2021. A Gatsby Garden Soirée will feature a socially distanced, garden-wide experience with music, wine, craft beer and food stations across our beautiful floral filled property with each location themed around the Roaring 20s and The Great Gatsby. It’s a perfect date night or a great evening out with your friends! Roaring 20s attire is encouraged but not required.
