You may have seen pictures at the Botanical Gardens this weekend and wondered, “Is it really back?”

The answer is…yes!

Dining at Dusk returned to the Botanical Gardens on June 26 with BBQ and Brass, featuring dinner from Curly’s Grille, live music from Buffalo Brass Machine, and desserts from High Vibe Sweets – but there are more chances this summer to go “Dining at Dusk” at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. 

You’ll see new performers, new foods on revamped menus, and new themes for the events!

Dining at Dusk typically happens on Sundays at least once per month, so there is plenty of opportunity for you to get out and enjoy the Botanical Gardens while taking in the music and trying out the foods. 


Take a look at the full Sunday event schedule for Dining at Dusk:

  • July 24 - Jazz Night; singer Alex McArthur; Tuscan chicken dinner box from Ilio Dipaolo's.
  • Aug. 28  - 50s Night; music from Brother James; Tuscan chicken dinner box from Ilio Dipaolo's.
  • Sept. 18 - 90s Night; music from Brother James; Tuscan chicken dinner box from Ilio Dipaolo's.
  • Oct. 2 - Oktoberfest; music from 15-person German band The Bergholz Blaskapelle; soft pretzels, brats and beer from Curly’s. 

If you’re thinking about attending one of the upcoming Sundays, pick out one of the themes or musical artists that would be fun for you! Everyone likes something different, but there is always a variety of food on the dinner menus, plenty of dessert vendors, and of course the Buffalo Bubble Bar.

Tickets are available on the Botanical Garden's website for Dining At Dusk, and they only cost $48 for the general public ($45 if you are a Botanical Gardens Members). All tickets include the live music, plus a boxed dinner, a glass of wine or beer from the Bubble Bar, and access to the conservatory at the Botanical Gardens conservatory.
