Great Arboretum Cookout 2014

Great Arboretum Cookout 2014

Mark your calendars for the 2014 Friends of the National Arboretum Cookout!

Each year in June, when the Arboretum grounds are in full bloom, FONA welcomes friends and guests to a relaxing evening overlooking the Capitol Columns. With a cocktail reception in the fragrant National Herb Garden and a feast in the meadow, the Great Arboretum Cookout is always a pleasure.

Not another DC black tie event, the Cookout brings together people from business, government and the community to support the gardens and programs at the Arboretum. Each year a different state is honored, in 2014 we are proud to salute Missouri.

This well-attended event always attracts a wonderful mix of guests: Arboretum enthusiasts, corporations with an interest in preserving greenspaces,  and this year, members of the Missouri Congressional delegation.
