Visitors will be encouraged to lounge on the lawn with lunch and listen to live music performed on the patio. Families can bring their children and spend the day. It will be a day to discover the Wadsworth Mansion, enjoy music and art, and experience the tradition of shopping at an open-air market.
Children’s and musical entertainment will be featured throughout the day. Docent-led historical tours will be given by the Friends of Long Hill Estate throughout the day.
