Gatsby Garden Party 2017
It's that time of year again!
The annual Gatsby Garden Party has returned for another two day extravaganza.
Saturday June 24: 12pm-5pm
Sunday June 25: 12pm-5pm
Step back in time with us for a summer day of 1920s music and fun on the luxurious grounds of Spadina Museum!
This year we are thrilled to present "The Wintergarten Orchestra" and "Ben Harvey and his Ornamentals". Keith, our Gramophone Guy, will be on site to showcase 1920s music players and spread the music.
A dance floor will be located on the South Lawn for those of you who want to shake your tail feathers.
Try your hand at the popular croquet game on the East Lawn. "The Toronto Cricket, Skating, and Curling Club" and "The Lawrence Park Lawn Bowling Club" will be on hand to show you how it's done.
The ever popular costume contest is back again! Judges will be choosing the best dressed and prized will be awarded. More costume contest details will be coming soon.
For an extra $5 when you buy your day tickets you can explore the historic 1920s mansion on a guided tour.
There will be two photo booths this year. Mugshots will be returning at the Garage, and we will also be hosting a Canada 150 Photo Booth where you can participate in a photo project about what Canada means to you.
Delicious refreshments will be available for purchase, including a signature drink made especially for the day by Kinsip House of Spirits.
Please feel free to bring a picnic! Lay out under our lush trees, enjoy the sunshine and music, and have a swell time!
