Körner’s Folly Family Fun Day: Good Old Fashioned Family Fun!
Saturday, June 24, 2017
Join us for the 2nd Annual Körner’s Folly Family Fun Day! Learn about historic games and Victorian traditions while participating in hands-on activities and crafts. This event will take place rain or shine. It will be held on the lawn, porches, and inside of Historic Körner’s Folly.
In addition to games and crafts, we are excited to present Aesop’s Fabulous Fables puppet show. This is a particularly fitting show, as local children used to perform these stories as part of the 1897 Juvenile Lyceum. The Lyceum performed in Cupid’s Park Theater, the top level of Körner’s Folly. Cupid’s Park Theater is believed to be the oldest private theater in America. Self-guided tours and scavenger hunts will also round out the day’s activities. The Puppet Show will be performed at 10:30am and 1:00pm, seating is limited, purchase tickets in advance to be sure you can see the puppet show.
This interactive learning experience is the perfect way to learn about this interesting period in American history. Inscribed in the sidewalk in front of the house is “Come in. You are at home.” We invite you to ‘come in,’ see the unique building Jule created, and join us for some good old-fashioned family fun!
