A Toast to Fort Tryon Park: Cocktail Party with Live Music

A Toast to Fort Tryon Park brings together more than 200 community members and wine and beer lovers from across the city in support of Fort Tryon Park, our beloved 67-acre scenic landmark. Crafted brews will be provided by Dyckman Beer Co. and delectable food by the New Leaf Restaurant. Raise a glass of fine wine in support of your favorite park and dance to the sounds of live Latin Jazz performed by Ran Kan Kan.  This year we will be honoring community heroes Ricardo Brown, Marcela Xavier, Elizabeth Ritter and Lourdes Rodriguez.

Benefit proceeds will help sustain this historic park, underwriting horticulture staff, free environmental, cultural and fitness programs, and targeted capital improvements in the park. Discounted tickets are available for $50 while supplies last.  Tickets are $65 at the door if space allows.

PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS HERE! Be sure to print out your receipt to bring with you for event entry. Given permitting requirements, only a limited number of  tickets will be available and all guests must be over 21.
