Upcoming Events

Here is a list of upcoming events that Bear Butte Gardens is either planning, sponsoring, hosting, or participating in.

Four Farm-to-Table Dinners For 2022!

Each farm-to-table dinner event will feature a local guest chef preparing a multi-course, locally sourced gourmet meal!

A limited number of tickets will be pre-sold for each event.  Each $100 ticket entitles the participant to an exquisite meal served on our patio; a glass of local wine, local craft beer, iced tea, lemonade, or similar; live music; and a stroll about the gardens and farm. A cash bar will be available for additional drinks. Each event will probably be held on the last Sunday evening of each month.

Farm-to-Table Dinner Event #1 - June 26 - Chef Travis Bartels

Farm-to-Table Dinner Event #2 - July 24 - Chef Vince Marsh

Farm-to-Table Dinner Event #3 - August 28 - Chef MJ Adams

Farm-to-Table Dinner Event #4 - September 25 - Chef to be announced

More information will be posted as details become available. Each chef will carefully create each menu based on the availablility of fresh produce in its prime ripeness from our organic gardens.


Once you purchase your ticket(s),they are transferrable (you can sell them to others) but they are NOT REFUNDABLE. Once you have sold your ticket, the new attendee's contact information must be shared with us so we may confirm.

These events tend to sell out, so don’t wait to get your tickets!
