The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will host its second international-themed food and wine festival on March 22 to celebrate cuisine and libations from many cultures, set against the backdrop of its spring festival Dallas Blooms.
Themed A World of Flowers, Dallas Blooms features more than 500,000 spring-blooming bulbs and is one of the “15 Breathtaking Botanical Gardens to Visit This Season,” according to Architectural Digest.
The spring social event will feature savory bites made by award-winning chefs from many fine restaurants around the Metroplex, with guests sampling fine wines and craft beers.
Mark Wolf, Dallas Arboretum board chairman, said, “This festival was developed in tandem with A Tasteful Place, the newest garden at the Arboretum that opened in October. We look forward to another spectacular festival at one of the most beautiful places in Dallas.”
The cuisine will focus on four regions in areas throughout the arboretum: Pan Asian, South American, American Bistro, and the Mediterranean.
Tickets are $140 each (general) and $195 each (VIP) and may be purchased online at dallasarboretum.org/foodwinefest.
Chef Janice Provost of Parigi, the Arboretum’s Food and Wine’s festival chair said, “The chefs of Dallas are beyond excited about participating in the Dallas Arboretum’s Food and Wine Festival, and incredibly enthusiastic about the opening of the newest food garden, A Tasteful Place. It’s amazing to partner with an organization that shares our passion of educating the public about growing and eating fresh, locally-grown food.”
