Twilight in the Garden is an opportunity for Rockford to celebrate great local foods and wonderful wines while supporting the programs, gardens, collections and educational opportunities that make Klehm Arboretum a cornerstone of stateline gardening culture.
Enjoy an upscale, yet relaxed, evening in Klehm’s unique gardens with a five-course gourmet meal prepared by Chef Ryan Adams and wine pairings from PRP Wines.
The chef and sommelier will introduce each course, explaining where the locally-sourced ingredients came from, how they were prepared, and how the wine complements the dish.

Raffle prizes include a private dinner for eight at your home or Klehm Arboretum with wine pairings, donated by the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center and PRP Wines; and a tree with planting (up to a $500 value), donated by J. Carlson Growers and Tree Care Enterprises.
