Barr Mansion hosts dozens of weddings, parties and even a festival or two at its stunning property in Northeast Austin.

But starting this month, Barr Mansion, 10463 Sprinkle Road, will launch Tastefully ATX, its first dinner series to benefit Austin-area nonprofits. The series starts on May 17 with a dinner from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. featuring food from Barr Mansion chef Jessie Ximenes.

Best part of this 5K on June 23? The food stops along the way!

The theme is Flower Power, so Ximenes will be sourcing many of the flowers and other edible plants from Barr Mansion’s sprawling organic garden. She’ll also have special guest Scooter Cheetham, president and founder of Useful Wild Plants, to share some of his wit and wisdom on the power of plants.

Tickets cost $125, and you can find them at barrmansion.com.
