Tryon Palace Lawn Party

Join us for a grand party on the Palace’s lawns!  Food, Live Music, Entertainment and More!

There will be engaging historic activities and crafts on the North Lawn to see and do.  The 1st NC Regiment of the Continental Army and the 35th Regiment of the United States Colored Troops will be there.  Expect an appearance of Tryon Palace’s Fife and Drum Corps.   On the great South Lawn, there will be all the fixings for an evening of fun for everyone!

Enjoy games and fun activities on the South Lawn – cornhole, giant Jenga, ladder ball and Connect 4. Listen to live music and dance with hula hoops.  Go into the Wilderness Garden and indulge in a tale with StoryWalk.

It’s not a party without food!  Dinner includes savory barbeque, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and ice cream!  For all those young at heart there will be a s’mores station to indulge in.  For adults who want to chill on the South Lawn with breathtaking views of the river, wine and beer is available for purchase.

The grand finale to the evening – a performance of fire dancers!  Do not miss this amazing event!
