5 – 8 p.m.
Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden
$220 per person
Adventurous diners will not want to miss out on Farm Dinners at the Chicago Botanic Garden, celebrating the connection between midwestern farmland and the locally grown food we love to eat.
Join farmers, food artisans, and makers of wine, beer, and spirits for a one-of-a-kind meal made with fresh, seasonal ingredients by a local chef, and served family-style in a casual outdoor setting.
Farm dinners take place in the beautiful Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden, where guests will not only revel in the surroundings and food, but also learn how the Garden is growing organic. Hear firsthand from Windy City Harvest Youth Farm students about how produce is planted, cultivated, and harvested! The Fruit & Vegetable Garden is open until 6 p.m. daily but closes at 4 p.m. on Farm Dinner dates.
Enjoy spectacular meals prepared with locally grown ingredients by award-winning chef Cleetus Friedman of Fountainhead Restaurant and the Bar on Buena. Guests will enjoy cocktails and a tour of the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden, followed by a unique dining experience under the grape arbor.
Tickets are available online or at the Visitor Center. Admission is $220 per person. Ticket price includes cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a tour, a multi-course meal with drinks, parking, and good company.
Proceeds from the dinner support the Garden’s Windy City Harvest Youth Farm program, offering students the opportunity to learn all aspects of organic farming.
Vegetarian and dietary restrictions can be accommodated upon request.
