The David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village CT will host Augustfest in the Village on Sunday August 21, from 4 to 6PM. Held outdoors on the library’s shady lawn, this fundraiser will feature grilled brats from Nodines, craft beers from Norbrook Farm Brewery, hot pretzels from The Falls Village Inn, a silent auction, and live music by Kane Clawson with Country Jam performing songs by Patsy Cline and others. A vegetarian option and lemonade will also be served, and each guest will receive a limited-edition Hunt Library cup. Silent auction items include a Coach purse, a private scenic plane ride and picnic for two over the Berkshires, a portrait session with photographer Rebecca Bloomfield, and a private wine tasting with Jim Kennedy of Salisbury Wines. This event was a big success last year and is the perfect open-air occasion to get out and catch up with your Falls Village community neighbors and friends. Tickets are $30; $5 for children under 12. Tickets are available to purchase at the door.
We have fabulous auction items this year! Take a look below and come to Augustfest ready to bid
An Evening in the Garden with Page Dickey at Church House
Visitors on this early evening garden tour will have the opportunity to walk with accomplished garden writer and passionate gardener Page Dickey through her property in Falls Village, CT. Page will guide guests through her front perennial garden, patterned cutting garden, pool garden, and terraces and learn about her favorite plants and their care. Visitors will then accompany Page along a path in the meadow and to the high rocky woods, where a trail reveals a vernal pool, cliffs, and, in May, hundreds of flowering native columbines. At the end of the walk, visitors will join Page for wine and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace and have a chance to ask questions and talk about their own gardening experiences.
