Explore the gorgeous, historic New York Botanical Garden as you take in a full day's worth of craft wine and beer tastings, live music, family activities and more at The Edible Academy Harvest Festival. The city's best purveyors, brewers and vintners will offer samples of their artisanal offerings while food trucks will be on-hand selling savory and sweet fare to complement the tastings. Listen to beer and wine experts as they discuss the nuances of creating perfect food and drink pairings, and even join celebrity chefs (and The Chew co-hosts) Mario Batali and Carla Hall for a live cooking demonstration at the Conservatory Tent on Sunday (admission to this Mario Batali cooking demo requires the purchase of the "General Admission + Mario Batali Demonstration" ticket). Along with live Americana bands like the Minivans and Roosevelt Dime, there'll be plenty of fun activities for families, including garden activities featuring bees and butterflies. The little ones will also get a kick out of getting an up-close look at the tractors, diggers and other machinery that the Garden uses to create its beautiful landscape. Learn More

I had a fun time at the botanical garden's wine in the garden festival. I toured the gardens, both indoor rainforest areas and outdoor native plant garden. I enjoyed tasting wines, cheeses and other local vendors at the booths set up outside. I would recommend visiting the garden this spring as a relaxing way to spend a weekend among the beautiful grounds.

June 7-8, 2014: The Rose Garden Celebration
Come June, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden is a sea of warm color, flush with the reds, whites, yellows, and pinks of more than 4,000 blooming plants. In celebration of the delicate beauty that defines this collection, as well as the peak of its seasonal color, stop by for two days of live music, plant care demonstrations and tours with expert rosarians, and light summer refreshments in the shade of the garden’s overlooks.

We’ll also have an array of local New York craft brews on hand to keep you cool.
