The Tasting at Woodward Park – September 27, 2019

from 150.00

To celebrate the longevity of our mission as horticultural headquarters and the 100th anniversary of The Mansion at Woodward Park, the Tulsa Garden Center is delighted to present our recently revamped fundraising gala, The Tasting at Woodward Park.

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. In 2017 this historic event was transformed into an updated and gorgeous experience.

The Tasting at Woodward Park not only represents a new paradigm for the Tulsa Garden Center, it also symbolizes a long-needed transition for the Tulsa Municipal Rose Garden. What was once a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and heady scents within a monoculture of roses became a heart wrenching Grey Gardens of disease and weeds, all because of a tiny mite. Today, though, the Tulsa Rose Garden is quickly becoming a multi-faceted green space being modernized to include perennials, native plants, and annuals, all friendly to pollinators, as well as hundreds of new rose bushes representing varieties brought in from around the United States to be tested for resistance to Rose Rosette Disease.

The Tasting at Woodward Park will continue the tradition of matching upscale wines with delectable hors d’oeuvres to provide a stimulating gastronomical experience, all while enjoying leisurely strolls through some of the most beautiful gardens in Tulsa. This exclusive Garden Party styled event also includes a redesigned footprint in Woodward Park, encompassing the uppermost terrace of the Tulsa Municipal Rose Garden as well as the ever-stunning Linnaeus Teaching Garden, our flagship program.

Scheduled for Friday, September 27th, guests can begin arriving at 7:00pm and will be greeted by valet parking. After checking in and receiving your complimentary wine glass, you will then be treated to a variety of high end food and beverages, while being encouraged to stay until a culmination of fireworks concludes the evening at 9:30pm.

Ticket prices include a discount for Tulsa Garden Center members, at $150 per person, or $175 for non-members. Reservations are required and space is limited to the first 400 guests. Attendees must be 21 years or older and proof of age is required.
