Special Event

Party in the Park

The Menil Collection is excited to announce the debut of a new fall fundraiser. The museum is inaugurating a new event that brings focus to the Menil neighborhood and its green spaces. Please mark your calendars for Thursday, October 28, 2021, when we debut Party in the Park.

Menil Park will serve as host for the enchanting occasion. The evening will include refreshing cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, multiple food stations, accompanied by a lively entertainment experience.

Table prices range from $5,000 to $25,000, with individual tickets available for $500 each. Proceeds from Party in the Park directly support the Menil Collection’s operations, which include the parks and green spaces. Everything the Menil does—from its exhibitions to its programs to access to its green spaces—is always provided free of charge to the public.
