Klyde Warren Park’s 2020 fundraiser “Party in the Park” will take place on the evening of Wednesday, October 14. Proceeds benefit Klyde Warren Park and ensure the future of more than 1,300 free annual programs and events highlighting the arts, education and good health. Lynn and Allan McBee are chairing the event, and Kathryn and Craig Hall will serve as Honorary Chairs.
“Party in the Park” takes Klyde Warren Park back to its roots, recreating the venue’s magical Grand Opening of 2012. Guests will be treated to an elegant evening under the stars, with decor created by Todd Events and an unparalleled 360-degree view of the uptown and downtown Dallas skylines.
A Champagne and cocktail reception kicks off the evening, followed by the city’s most stylish picnic supper. Then, supporting the Park’s mission of highlighting the region’s multitude of cultures and talents, The Texas Tenors take the stage for a musical performance showcasing hits that range from classical music to Broadway to opera to country.
Since its inception, Klyde Warren Park has hosted a two-part annual fundraiser called “Park & Palate,” which included an evening seated dinner and a daytime food-and-wine festival. Both events proved so successful, they are now being separated to allow each to grow independently. The newly named “Party in the Park” takes place this October, and the “Klyde Warren Park Food & Wine Festival” will move to May 1, 2021.
Klyde Warren Park hosts these annual events to raise funds for its yearly operating costs to maintain a pristine and safe gathering space for every socioeconomic group in Dallas. The 5.2-acre park is managed by the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, relying on contributions from donors to support maintenance, special programming and educational activities for more than one million visitors each year.
