Celebrate local restaurants and farms at Sustainable Food Center's spring Garden Party!

Held in the beautiful gardens of Barr Mansion, you'll enjoy a unique, upscale (safe and socially-distanced) picnic experience featuring delicious, exclusive meals prepared by Austin's top chefs. Choose your meal from your favorite restaurant, and your picnic basket will be prepared just for you!

You'll also enjoy a special food and farm-focused film screening, music, and our annual Sustainable Food Changemaker Award ceremony. But that's not all! The Garden Party also features a live and silent auction, as well as local beer, wine, and artisan cocktails.

Plus, all proceeds raise critical funds to support our local farmers and increase essential access to healthy, local food in Central Texas.

Save the Date for May 6, 2021 - tickets will be released soon. Sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to know when tickets become available.

*In the event of inclement weather or COVID-19 safety concerns, this event will move to a virtual experience. Meals and drinks will be provided for you to enjoy at home.
