Thirsty Third Thursdays

Join us for Thirsty Third Thursdays, a specially ticketed Cocktail Crawl throughout the gardens taking place June 17th, July 15th, August 19th, September 16th, & October 21st. Each Thirsty Third Thursday will feature a different brand sponsor highlighting four signature cocktails that vary each event!

Hop from bar to bar, scattered throughout the gardens, tasting 4 signature cocktails ​from our featured sponsor. With the help of your complimentary Cocktail Crawl map and take-a-way Cheekwood branded lanyard, you will also be able to enjoy our current summertime exhibition, Sean Kenney’s Nature POP! featuring 38 colorful sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO® Bricks. Listen to live music, grab a bite from our favorite food trucks, experience the Ann & Monroe Carell Jr. Family Sculpture Trail, and more.
