Take time to go back to an 18th-century Palace Garden Party “of the mind and the heart." Thomas Jefferson, the last governor to reside at the Palace, opens the gates and invites residents of the colonial community to a fun-filled celebration on the Palace grounds. Guests of the 21st century will wear 18th-century clothing and be fully immersed in the colonial landscape of traditional music, dancing, theatrics, and games. Highlights include a timeless concert performance by award-winning artist Betty Buckley. The evening concludes with an 18th-century-style extravaganza of pyrotechnics, capping off a memorable spring evening in Virginia's colonial capital city.
