Folly Garden Party

Eat, Drink, & be Jolly for the Folly

Join us on Sunday, June 6th from 4-7PM

Every year our Development Director, Brian Williams, hosts the Folly Garden Party in the garden of his historic Hyde Park Home to help raise funds for the Folly Theater’s general operations fund. These funds are used to help pay for the operation and maintenance of the historic theater, book internationally acclaimed artists for the Folly Jazz Series, and much more.

If you would like to be a sponsor or an underwriter please contact Brian Williams.

Check back soon for more information on how to reserve your picnic basket!

Thanks to you we raised over $57,000 last September for the Folly Theater!

Thanks to all the amazing attendees and sponsors of the 2020 Folly (socially-distanced) Garden Party we managed to raise just over $57,000 toward supporting the Folly as she enters her 120th anniversary!

Guests were met with a picnic basket full of fried chicken, pasta salad, and other picnic fare, along with hand sanitizer and their own #FollyLove mask! It was a fabulous afternoon with masked conversations and socially distanced “cheers” in honor of our late friend C. Stephen Metzler & the Folly Theater.

Make sure you’re on the list for this year by signing up for the Folly’s Email Newsletters and follow us on social media!
