Shangri La Botanical Gardens to host spring Sip and Stroll series


Last updated 3/12/2024 at 9:56pm

Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is thrilled to announce the return of their spring event series, Sip and Stroll. The public is invited to experience golden hour in the gardens during a unique, after-hours experience on Thursday, March 21, from 5-8 p.m. This event is a collaboration with Free State Cellars. Admission to Sip and Stroll is free of charge.

At Sip and Stroll, visitors can expect to stroll through the lush gardens featuring vibrant spring blooms, all while enjoying a selection of wines from Free State Cellars. This event is sure to be a delight with a special appearance by The Ever Afters Band, who will be performing live music.

"We are excited to bring back this fan-favorite event series each third Thursday during March through May. This golden hour experience provides an opportunity to take in the sounds and sights of nature, as well as live music, at a time of day that the gardens are normally closed," said Angie Mason, executive director of Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.

A limited supply of picnic boxes and à la carte food items will be available for purchase on site. Visitors are encouraged to reserve their picnic by pre-ordering from Free State Cellars in advance. Wine by the glass, sangria and lemonade will also be available for purchase during Sip and Stroll at the Gin Atomic Traveling Cocktails camper, as well as Crescent Moon Concessions.

"This unique event provides the perfect setting for a girls' night or date night experience. We encourage you to share your experience with loved ones as you unwind, connect with nature and savor the brilliance of spring in the garden together," said Mason.

Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket to sit on while they picnic. Please note that outside food and beverages will not be permitted into the venue. The last entry is at 7:30 p.m. Additional Sip and Stroll events will be held on April 18 and May 16.

Shangri La Gardens and Nature Center is located at 2111 West Park Avenue in Orange, Texas. For more information, please visit
