Summer at the Barker Mansion is here! We are anxiously awaiting some of our newer events such as our Summer Camp and Movie by Moonlight events. For the first time, I will experience the Pink Tea event coming up on June 25th and 26th. Both afternoon teas will start at 3pm.
The Pink Tea has been a Barker Mansion tradition for quite a few years. Traditionally held outside under the pergola, the tea invites a new experience to guests. When the Barkers lived in the mansion over 100 years ago, tea in the garden, whether in the tea house or under the pergola, was not out of the ordinary. At the Pink Tea, guests can imagine what tea with Mrs. Barker and friends could have been like as they enjoy the sites of the garden with their own family and friends.
This year’s afternoon tea will be catered by the Duneland Beach Inn. Take a sneak peak at our menu!
The Braur Museum’s Gregg Hertzlieb will be our speaker this year. He will take a look at the captivating artwork of dunes painter Frank Dudley(1868-1957), whose regional contributions in the creative and environmental realms would have been familiar to the Barker Family.
Reserve your seat at this year’s Pink Tea!
Also new this year, the occasion will include a self-guided first floor tour of the mansion following the event. Advance registration and payment of $32 per adult or $28 per youth (ages 17 and under) is required. Groups can reserve a table of six for $180. Eventbrite processing fees will apply.
