August 17: FOOD in the Garden - Fermentation Nation
6:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. • Second Floor Terrace, West
Tickets: $40 Tickets include food and drink

Join us outdoors in the museum's newest garden space this summer for evenings of food, drinks, and dynamic conversation. On August 17 we will dive into the long (and tasty) influence of fermentation in American culinary history. From beer and wine, to pickling and preserving, how have Americans used this chemical reaction to a delicious advantage throughout history? The evening will feature a panel discussion with experts and historians and an interactive reception with: 

  • Custom cocktails courtesy of New Columbia Distillers
  • Craft brews from Right Proper Brewery
  • Tours of Common Ground: Our American Garden with Smithsonian Gardens
  • Interactive activities with Smithsonian Gardens
  • Objects on Display from the Museum’s Medical and Science Division
  • And more to be announced soon!
