The event has been updated for 2017, but favorites like the upscale wines, beautiful gardens and fireworks display are here to stay.
In anticipation of the Tulsa Garden Center’s 70th anniversary, the staff and volunteers there have been very busy cleaning house, planning and making preparations for the next era of horticultural guardians. To celebrate this longevity of purpose and mission they are delighted to present a spectacular new fundraising event, The Tasting at Woodward Park, on September 29, 2017.
For over 20 years, the Tulsa Garden Center hosted An Evening of Wine & Roses, a much-beloved event which truly embodied elegance in the garden. For 2017, this historic event has been transformed into an updated and gorgeous experience which continues the tradition of matching upscale wines with delectable hors d’oeuvres, all while enjoying some of the most beautiful gardens in Tulsa.
The exclusive Garden Party event is set on a redesigned Woodward Park Location, encompassing the top terrace of the Rose Garden as well as the ever-stunning Linnaeus Teaching Garden.
Drop off your car at the convenient valet parking station beginning at 7 p.m., then check in to receive a complimentary wine glass (which will also serve as your event ticket). Enjoy a beautiful evening under the stars with delicious food and drink and, finally, look forward to a dramatic end-of-evening display as fireworks brighten the night sky at 9:30 p.m.
Proceeds from The Tasting at Woodward Park benefit our mission of providing horticultural and environmental education opportunities while serving as horticultural headquarters for the Tulsa area.
For online payment reservations, please visit www.tulsagardencenter.com/the-tasting or call (918) 576-5155. Attendees must be 21 years or older.
