Spring Tea in Folsom Tavern

Saturday, May 4 at 11am and 2pm

You are cordially invited to a Spring Tea in Folsom Tavern. Sip delicious teas and dine on small bites provided by colonial-inspired caterer For the Love of Food and Drink while enjoying the 1775 Tavern where George Washington once dined. Interact with our colonial clad hosts, create your own historic handiwork with lavender sachet and try your hand at traditional quill pen writing. A great way to celebrate Spring, the Museum’s opening weekend, and the upcoming Mother’s Day holiday. All tea guests are also invited to tour the museum.

Please note, this tea is meant to reflect the tavern’s 1775 revolutionary history and therefore is more rustic and relaxed than a traditional Victorian or high English tea. Each Tea is two hours long. All ages welcome, highchairs are not available.
