Rosé and Roses: A Twilight Preview of the Garden in Bloom

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

5-8pm

Free entry, food and drink available for purchase.

Registration required as space is limited

Bask in the twilight glow and stop to smell the roses in bloom. Stroll the paths of the oldest rose garden in the United States still growing in its original plan. Sip rosé, enjoy live music, play some lawn games, and get to know your neighbors.

Join us on May 21st 5-8pm and support a Philadelphia treasure.

All proceeds benefit Wyck Historic, House, Garden, & Farm, a National Historic Landmark house, garden, and farm in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia that served as the ancestral home to one Philadelphia family for nine generations (1690-1973). The 2.5-acre, centuries-old site plays an essential role in the life of its 21st-century urban neighborhood, using buildings, landscape, and collections to provide educational, cultural, and nutritional resources for our neighbors and visitors.

This event is part of the launch of the Young Friends of Wyck. You can join this group for $35 at the event (stay tuned for online registration). Becoming a Young Friend of Wyck means joining an active community moved to preserve a one-of-a-kind cultural resource and bring it to life. Young Friends of Wyck steward, invigorate, and enjoy the site’s resources including America’s Oldest Rose Garden, an active farm, and the house and collections spanning 330 years of Philadelphia history – all while connecting with other passionate young people from the area.
