With stunning views overlooking the City, Barnsdall Art Park welcomes Angelenos—21 years and older—to sip wine, picnic and watch the sunset for another not-to-be-missed season of wine tasting at the iconic cultural destination. Marking its 9th season and attracting sellout crowds, the renowned Barnsdall Friday Night Wine Tastings—the Foundation’s signature fundraising event—returns to the hill on June 9th and continues through September 22nd. Music will be presented by KCRW’s DJ Marion Hodges, DJ Ed Mattiuzzi (aka youNGNoon) and ongoing partner, Silverlake Wine will curate their fine selections of boutique artisanal wines. There will be a number of rotating food trucks on hand as well as micro pop-ups by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and The Cheese Store of Silverlake.
Taking place on the West Lawn, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, tickets cost $35 for a tasting and $50 for a tasting + tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s UNESCO-nominated Hollyhock House with tour times at 5:45, 6:15, 6:45, 7:15 p.m. There will be a brand-new merchandise table with Barnsdall-centric swag available for purchase, including branded wine-tasting Tees, signature wine glasses, as well as savory and sweet snacks. While families of all ages are invited to enjoy the Park, picnic, and dance, due to legal regulations, only those ages 21+ will be allowed inside the fence for the Hollyhock House tour and wine tasting event. The event supports the Park’s capital projects, art programs, historic renovations and gallery exhibitions. Patrons are encouraged to check the website for the summer schedule. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/barnsdall-art-park-foundation-presents-barnsdall-fridays-tickets-34154511062
