Join us on the meadow for one of our lovingly crafted summer meals - Dinner May 21st, Dinner May 22nd, Dinner September 10th, and Brunch September 12th.

Under the direction of Head Chef Erin Chapla, meals are composed from a voluptuous array of seasonal delights, showcasing the very best talents of our extraordinary chefs. Friday dinners will be served from 6 p.m. until our renowned sunset! Your dinner will include a picnic platter, sides, dessert and a limited wine pairing of your choice. Additional cocktails and other beverages will be available for purchase at our meadow-side bar, The Golden Hour. Dining will be accompanied by an auditory experience provided by our talented in-house DJs. *Note: tables are limited to 6 people.

After your meal, join us for an art making experience and visit our Painting Studio Gallery for Ox-Bow-made glassware, table linens, ceramics and much more.
