Our popular Dining at Dusk event is BACK!
Join us for dinner on our front lawn to celebrate the Botanical Gardens and one of Erie County’s cultural jewels! This year, Erie County is celebrating its 200th Anniversary and this event is a wonderful way to enjoy what our vibrant community has to offer.
Dining at Dusk is a great date night idea that is socially distant with a relaxed outdoor dining feel. Enjoy the amazing summer weather, live music from Brother James and a delicious boxed dinner from Rich’s Catering. Reserve your socially distanced space on our front lawn today! Bring a blanket, chairs and your family for a delightful and relaxing evening. This is outdoor dining at it’s best!
Come out to support YOUR Botanical Garden and Erie County’s 200th Anniversary!
“At times in our history it is important to pause and reflect on where we’ve been, the challenges and successes we’ve had, and the path that has brought us to this point in time. Erie County’s rich, vibrant and bustling history will be spotlighted and celebrated throughout our bicentennial year as EC200 gives us all the opportunity to become better acquainted with the men and women who shaped our county into what it is today. Having this historical perspective makes us better-prepared to understand our role and responsibility in continuing Erie County’s growth for the next 200 years” – Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz
