Celebrate one of the nature’s great performances and enjoy a multi-course dinner outdoors on the grounds around Mabry-Hazen House! On Friday, April 16, 2021 from 6-9pm, the museum will host our second annual 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.

A stop on the Dogwood Trail, 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.

Like always, we are taking safety at our event seriously. We have implemented the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees and staff:

Tables will be set-up outdoors and spaced to allow for physical distancing between groups.
Each group will have their own personal table. Seating is available at each table for up to 8 guests. Tickets must be purchased together to reserve table.
Masks/face coverings are required when not at table.
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 $60 per person, and includes hors d'oeuvres, multi-course dinner, table wine, and cocktails. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available by request. All proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House and our mission.

In case of rain, dinner will be rescheduled for Friday, April 23, 2021. Refunds will be made available if unable to attend.
