Sunken Garden Poetry Festival – Poetry and Pets for Kids

September 25, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Our founder, Theodate Pope Riddle, loved her pets almost as much as she loved Hill-Stead! Here is a photo of her with her dog, Jim Jam, named after writer Henry James (1843–1916). Enjoy a drop-in activity where families can compose poems to celebrate their four-legged companions! Bring a photo of your pet (leashed dogs welcome) and create a rhyme to immortalize your love.

Free admission for all
