Slow down, relax and breathe in… before stuffing your face. This month, don’t be shy because only your special someone and the moon will watch as you dig during the Twilight Picnic Experience at the U of A Botanic garden.

With openings on Friday and Saturday evenings, this intimate event gives garden-lovers and romance-seekers alike the most beautiful excuse to get out, about and have a drink or two in the grass at one of Alberta’s most incredible destinations.

Offering chef-curated kits, guests are encouraged to purchase a basket and take a seat or add some extras like blankets, chocolates, flowers and notes.
