VICTORIAN PARLOR SERIES: PICNIC WITH THE PRESCOTT
Join us for a party on the North Lawn at Körner’s Folly!
Sunday, May 19, 2019, 3 PM – 6 PM
During the Victorian period, the Parlor represented a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, partly to amuse one another and also to increase the knowledge of guests through conversation. The Victorian Parlor Series re-imagines the Parlor, as we explore topics related to Historic Körner’s Folly and popular culture of the Victorian era while sipping, snacking and socializing.
To celebrate the fine spring weather, we’re taking the Parlor outside for a Victorian-style picnic, featuring menu by local farm-to-table restaurant The Prescott. In addition to “Aunt Dealy’s Lemonade” signature cocktail, Chef Trey Prescott will create fresh takes on other classic Körner Family recipes.
Harking back to the days of Jule and Polly Alice, we will enjoy games on the North Lawn including Croquet, Badminton, and Graces. This event is BYOB – Bring Your Own Blanket, providing a great opportunity for visitors to lounge outdoors Victorian-style. Costumed party-goers will be in attendance, and visitors are encouraged to show off their own festive attire.
Tickets are $25 for Adults / $15 for Children (Under 13) and include refreshments, games, and self-guided tours of the historic house museum. Pets are not allowed, but service animals are always welcome.
