Not many food festivals in Austin can claim a 25-year history.

Next week, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum will host its 25th annual Garden Party, a fundraiser featuring more than two dozen restaurants.

The event will take place from 6:3o to 9:30 p.m. at the sculpture garden, at 605 Robert E. Lee Road near Zilker Park, where guests will enjoy food from restaurants including Apis, Bribery Bakery, Foreign & Domestic, Geraldine’s, Max’s Wine Dive, Olive & June, Rebel Pizza Bar, Satay and Maudie’s, as well as wine and other drinks from Twin Liquors.

There will also be live music from the Nash Hernandez Orchestra. The event raises money for the museum’s programming, including summer camps for kids.

Tickets cost $150, and you can buy two VIP tickets for $500, which include a pre-party with food from Mongers Market & Kitchen and Central Market. You can buy tickets and find more information at umlaufsculpture.org/gardenparty.
