This year marks the 120th anniversary of a “most elaborate lawn fete” on the property of Sarah and George Joslyn. Before they built their “very fine home” they allowed the use of their lawn for a city-supported fundraising event. We will be hosting our very own Joslyn Castle Lawn Fete on August 24, 2017!

This event is proudly chaired by Congressman Brad Ashford and his wife Ann Ashford. 

Join us for a summer evening of celebration under the stars on the Castle grounds. Guests will enjoy dining, traditional lawn games, live music and dancing – just as the Joslyns and their guests enjoyed in 1897!

An exclusive patron party will be offered prior to the event with an all-access, “unlocked” Castle tour. These tours include George’s often unseen “man-cave” basement and the 3rd floor ballroom with turret access. Patron guests can enjoy drinks from the hosted bar and pre-dinner lawn events on the Castle grounds.

Dinner will be served under a tent where the Joslyn’s greenhouse once stood and the night will conclude with dessert and dancing.
