SOLD OUT- Through the Roof: An Evening Celebrating our Blooming Agave

September 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This event is sold out and we will not have any tickets available at the door.

Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance invites you to this evening celebration half a century in the making! Join in the fun as we celebrate the life of our guest-of-honor, a Century Plant affectionately known as Maya. After 50 years of preparation, Maya has shot up 37 feet through the Conservatory roof in a marvelous, once-in-a-lifetime bloom. Satisfy your curiosity about this unique desert plant and engage your senses with agave-fueled cocktails and spirits from some of the world’s best distilleries paired with delicious food bites from some of Chicago’s best multi-cultural restaurants. This event wouldn’t be possible without our partnership with S.A.C.R.E.D. – check out their time-lapse video of Maya at This is a ticketed event, with limited space available, so purchase today! Check back soon for an updated list of distilleries.
