Starlight Dinners: A Taste of Summer

This year, in place of our annual tasting event, the Conservancy is excited to bring a new culinary experience to our friends and supporters with a series of intimate dinners that will be hosted by some of New York City’s best chefs and restaurants at iconic locations throughout Central Park. These unique dinners under the stars will not only support the everyday operations of Central Park but also honor the New York City restaurant community at a time when it’s needed most.
