Guests are also welcome to bring outside food, however, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo cannot arrange for transportation of these items from the delivery vehicle, nor do we offer food serving items or plates, etc.  Please plan ahead for your event if you choose to bring in food.

I just ordered another reserved table.  How can I ensure that this table gets put next to my previously reserved tables?  While not guaranteed, the Wine Garden Committee will make a best effort to place tables together upon request.

What if I want to reserve multiple tents and the open area space in between the tents?  There doesn't seem to be a place to make that reservation?  This requires an email/phone call to work through the details. The Champion Wine Garden is a very popular destination during the Rodeo., and it is often difficult to get large reserved parties into the Garden without an impact on the experience of other guests.  Contact hlsrwineconcierge@gmail.com to set up a time to discuss the details of your request.

What happens if it rains?  The Show must go on!  Through rain, wind, and storms (luckily no snow yet) the Champion Wine Garden remains open.   Remember, there are no refunds so we hope you still come out and experience the Champion Wine Garden!
