What is Tyler at Twilight?

It’s Tyler Arboretum’s biggest fundraiser of the year! Join us as we come together to support the care and protection of our woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and gardens. Tyler at Twilight consists of two events. Both take place on Thursday, June 8, 2023. The Cocktail Party is from 5:00-6:30pm. and the Seated Dinner is from 6:45-9:15pm. You can purchase tickets to one or both events.

What can I expect?

You can expect to have fun! This year’s theme is Firelight Fête. It will be a memorable evening together with fun, friends, and festivities to support the Arboretum. At the Cocktail Party, you’ll enjoy our signature cocktail, a wine and beer bar, delicious appetizers, and a live performance. At the Seated Dinner, you’ll enjoy a candlelit dinner with drinks and dessert, a rousing live auction, and more. Throughout both events, you can expect plenty of opportunities to have fun while showing your support of Tyler Arboretum.
