Food and Beverage

Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Alcohol Policy– Guests may no longer bring in their own alcoholic beverages; adult beverages may only be served by appropriately licensed vendors. While it is difficult for the Garden to tell our patrons they are no longer allowed to bring in their own beer and wine, it is important we comply with state laws and ensure the safety of our guests.

We know all who enjoy supporting the Garden and Garden events are also proponents of buying local efforts, so on a positive note, we are happy to announce the change has brought about a new level of partnerships with local vendors. Guests will enjoy a plethora of wineries and breweries at Garden events.  These partnerships ensure there are reasonably priced beverages for purchase at each event. We look forward to seeing you in the Garden soon and hope to raise a glass with you.  Please help us thank those vendors who are also supporting the Garden this year as a portion of every sale will return to the Garden!

Willowcreek Grill & Raw Sushi will provide food, non-alcoholic, and adult beverages
