Jane Austen Society Tea Party in the Park

Saturday, April 29, 2023. Woodward Park.
Time: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Includes an optional visit to the Shinzen Friendship Garden to enjoy the splendor!

Our second event of the year will be an alfresco tea party and book discussion in Woodward Park with an optional visit to the Shinzen Friendship Garden. This social outing is a great opportunity to visit our JASNA region and get to know us a bit better.

We’ll be located in the free area of Woodward Park next to the lake, just before the Shinzen Garden parking lot.

Regency costumes are admired but not required. Garden party attire is also encouraged. Parasols and BYO chairs are recommended. Book discussion title: Your Favorite Austen!

Menu: We will provide a spread of tea, cold beverages, and a few tea sandwiches and baked goods. Feel free to contribute.

Our event is free and open to the public. (Woodward Park charges $5 cash per car to enter the park. Shinzen Garden entry is also $5 for adults/$1 for Seniors.)
