Alice would feel right at home at this madcap party at the Smithsonian that transforms the Victorian-style Enid A. Haupt Garden into a landscape of delights. As sunset slips into night, the magical setting comes alive with music by DJ Alkimist, outdoor games (moonlight croquet, anyone?), craft activities, and plenty of surprises.
Find your style inspiration in period garden-party attire or your favorite Alice in Wonderland character. You might not meet a white rabbit, but you can sip specialty cocktails designed by Arlington’s Tortoise & Hare as you wander through the lantern-decked grounds. And speaking of wonders, meet Todd McGrain, whose fantastic large-scale bird sculptures now anchor the corners of the Haupt Garden’s ornately planted lawn.
Capture your evening in Wonderland with EventShare, Washington's most innovative photo booth, and edit and share your pics instantly on the large HD touchscreen.
Make sure your pocket watch is wound: You don’t want to be late for this one-of-a-kind adventure.
