Sip-n-Shop! Party to support the Garden

Why wait for the holidays to shop and support your Memphis Botanic Garden?
It's been a long, sunny summer, and we're ready to welcome fall with a sip-fest of wines, hors d'oeuvres, and local artisan vendors.

What: Vine to Wine at the Garden: Siptember Sip-n-Shop
When: Tuesday, September 27, 5-8 pm
Where: Memphis Botanic Garden, Goldsmith Room and Sculpture Garden
Cost: Members $35/Non-members $45
Tickets: Buy online here or call 901-636-4130 to confirm by phone.

There are only 2 more events in our 2016 Vine to Wine series, and this year has been a fun mix of themes, wines, eats, new faces, and, of course, our best regulars! For this month's affair, we wanted to throw something a little different into the mix, so we've hand-picked vendors who will be onsite with a variety of goodies for you to pick up as a treat for yourself, a birthday gift, or (if you're one of THOSE people) an early start on your holiday shopping.

You'll enjoy 8 wine samplings, along with hors d'oeuvres by some of our returning favorites.

(Now is a good time for us to extend a very special thank you to the folks at Frost for indulging our sweet tooths (teeth? Okay, "vice!") all season and supporting the Garden's education and horticulture programs through their generosity.)

This month, as an added bonus, we will also have tastings from The Mighty Olive, who will offer products for sale so you can indulge in a take-home treat!

Here's the run-down on the folks who will provide the shopping. We think the selection is diverse enough to offer something for everyone, plus, you are supporting local Memphis makers and entrepreneurs at the same time!


Even if you're not looking for after-work shopping therapy, you'll love the sounds of Butler & McCool (a repeat fave, BUT featuring special guest musicians this time!) And there's always the Garden...because who doesn't love a sunset walk around our beautiful grounds with a glass of wine? (If you haven't tried it, you absolutely's one of the most relaxing "happy hours" in town!)

So, back to that original question, "Why wait?" We hear that collective sigh of back-to-school routines, daily carpools, no more beach vacay...let's turn it into a celebration of fall fun Tuesday night. Your ticket purchase directly benefits the Garden's operation, so you can truly sip and support!
