Spread out your picnic blanket on the great lawn of the Crane Estate for a lazy evening of summertime enjoyment. Each week offers an exciting family-friendly, danceable band. Walk the grounds, visit the gardens, relax on the lawn, or grab a ball or frisbee for a quick game! For some extra fun, Alicja Kwade's unique "Tunnel Teller" installation will be sticking around on the site of the Great House's historic maze. We'll also have weekly prize drawings and special membership promotions in our visitor information tent.

Tickets are available at the gate only. Gates will open at 5pm so you can get in and get settled with a picnic before the show begins at 7.
