Garden Faire and Gymkhana

Living History Weekend

Saturday and Sunday, June 23 - 24

World War I Centennial

A weekend of activities for all ages.

In June 1918 John S. Phipps held a gymkhana (jim- 'ka-nә) on his estate for the relief of the families of British and Canadian servicemen. This event included equestrian games and demonstrations, food tents and flyovers by military aircraft based at Mitchell Field.

Join us as we commemorate this event with a “living history” weekend with WWI re-enactors, period vehicles, crafts and games for children and horse demonstrations.
