Outdoor Tea and Full Moon Eclipse Viewing at Boscobel in Garrison in May

Boscobel in Garrison

May is a busy month at Boscobel House and Gardens, in Garrison, which will host an informal Mother’s Day tea service and brunch on May 7 and 8, 2022, as well as a Flower Moon eclipse gathering on May 15.

Tickets to the Mother’s Day event include a hot tea service, savory or sweet brunch boxes and a bunch of blooming tulips from Parcel Flower Co. Brunch and tea will be held outdoors in Boscobel House’s forecourt, with live classical guitar music.

The Flower Moon Eclipse Gathering will be held on May 15, from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Anthony Pellegrino, Boscobel’s communications manager, says the gathering is an opportunity for families to do outdoor things together, and take a break from screen time.

“It can be hard to find safe spots to watch celestial happenings such as eclipses,” he says. “This is a safe place to see the full lunar eclipse, learn the facts and history of eclipses and the science behind them, and catch a 19th-century magic lantern performance. It’s an experience that will enhance your spring in the Hudson Valley.”

Boscobel, a historic house and nonprofit museum, also offers admission to 68 acres of its grounds, which feature dramatic views of the Hudson River.
