Barkhamsted Historical Society's Tavern Night
On Oct.22nd at 7pm we will have the Tavern “open for business’ just like it was in the 1800’s. Dress up in period clothes (if you dare) and join us for Tavern food and drinks as well as games and music. We will have contra dancing in the Ballroom after dinner beginning at 8pm.
Cost is $10 per person, with children free and tickets may be purchased at the Tavern during our regular hours (Wed. 9am-12 or Sunday 1pm-4) or at the door. It’s a great way to travel back in time and have an enjoyable evening with friends and neighbors. Hope you can come!
We have done this for several years and everyone who comes really enjoys it. The Tavern looks so nice all lit up with people talking and dancing just as I am sure it did many years ago. Join us at Squire’s Tavern 100 East River Rd.,Barkhamsted,Ct. Questions call: Noreen Watson 860 738 1152
