From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend, Barnsdall Park hosts’ evenings of fine wine and art in the gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright’s newly restored architectural gem, Hollyhock House. This summer, ongoing partner, Silverlake Wine, returns curating fine selections of boutique, small production, artisanal wines for park-goers as well as local gourmet cheese shop, Say Cheese. Art workshops for children, music by KCRW’s DJ Dan Wilcox and a host of specialty food trucks, also compliment this popular family friendly event that has raised over $500K to support the Park’s capital projects, art programs, historic renovations and gallery exhibitions over the last six years.

At this beautiful spot overlooking the City, Barnsdall Park will welcome Angelenos to sip wine, picnic, enjoy the panoramic views and watch the sunset for another not-to-be-missed season of wine, food, and art at this iconic cultural destination. With the recent reopening of Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Hollyhock House, one of the nice new features of this year’s fundraiser will be curator-led tours of the house during the course of the evening for an additional $12.
