Dinner in the Gardens


Dinner in the Gardens

Your Neighborhood Table Starts Here.

October 19, 2019

5:30 P.M. - 9:30 P.M.

(Belvedere Blvd. between Peabody Ave. & Glenwood Place)


This Fall, amidst a crisp Autumn backdrop at Peabody Avenue and South Belvedere Boulevard, Edible Memphis and the Central Gardens Association will partner to host Dinner in the Gardens: an extravagant neighborhood dinner experience that allows us to bring people together to engage with the Central Gardens Historic District in an unprecedented way. This seven-course, farm-to-table dinner will bring together friends from all over the city with the goal of fostering connections and conversation. It also allows us an opportunity to give back thanks to our partnership with Community LIFT, an organization dedicated to accelerating the revitalization of disinvested neighborhoods. Over half of the proceeds will go to select grantees from LIFT's 2019 Memphis Empowerment Fund to support initiatives in other historic neighborhoods in the city core.  


Highlights Include:

  • 5 local chefs each preparing a custom seasonal course
  • Fall outdoor farm-to-table dinner
  • Cocktails by Old Dominick Distillery
  • Support of the Central Gardens Association and historic preservation
  • A VIP party hosted at historic home 644 S. Blevedere Blvd.
  • Zero Waste Event
  • Supports the Central Gardens Association, a 501(c)3, and our mission:

“Our mission is to sustain and enhance the quality of our historic neighborhood, preserving its environmental and architectural character and encouraging a sense of community to be the premier historic, residential neighborhood in the Mid-South.”
