On Sunday 3 May, friends who gather at the Stevens-Frisbie House on Main Street in Cromwell will celebrate the arrival of gentler weather at the 12th Annual May Day Tea presented by the Cromwell Historical Society. Hosted by Juleps &Viragoes, the living history department of the Historical Society, in mid-nineteenth-century attire, the Tea begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m., throughout which tea and a light repast may be had in the Dining Room. Through out the afternoon, the traditional May-pole Dance bedecks the flagpole in the North Lawn with the fluttering colours of Spring – participants need enthusiasm only, as the dance itself is engagingly simple! Croquet on the South Lawn and Graces on the Front provide leisurely diversions.
Admission to the May Day Tea is free, but we are most appreciative of donations made to support the work of the Cromwell Historical Society!
We hope to see you for Tea!
