Dinner in the Dogwoods
Celebrate one of the nature’s great performances and enjoy a three-course dinner on the front porch of Mabry-Hazen House! On Saturday, April 27, 2019 the museum will host “Dinner in the Dogwoods” in partnership with Sister South Fine Food. Guests will be treated to a cocktail hour in our historic dogwood grove followed by a three-course dinner on the historic front porch.
Added to the Dogwood Trail in 2019, Mabry-Hazen House conserves over 80 flowering dogwood trees, and their flowery blooms will be in full force, adorning Mabry’s Hill in an array of whites, pinks, and greens. The site is also a level 1 arboretum, conserving 32 species of trees including ancient southern magnolias, oaks, and maples.
Sister South Fine Foods is operated by chef/owner Jessica Hammonds. She offered one of the earliest Community Supported Agriculture programs in Knoxville, sold Certified Naturally Grown produce at local farmers’ markets, and today, Sister South Fine Foods aims to educate the community about the ease and beauty of eating locally and seasonally.
Tickets are $65 per person, and includes appetizers, a three-course dinner, and red and white wine. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available by request.
