Grand Siecle Costume Picnic and visit at Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte

  • Jun 16, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

* UPDATE for train departure! *

We take the train from Gare de Lyon at 8:49am, so we will try to find each other beforehand.

I assume you all have your tickets, right?


Relive a day in the King’s Court: Luncheon on the Grass, elegance contest and many activities of the 17th and 18th centuries in the garden (artistic fencing, horses show, baroque dances).

Costume hire at the chateau possible! You may visit in your normal attire... Kids welcome too.

Take something to eat and drink and share for the picnic, and any table accessories that you may find (see the picture for ideas!).


The full price entrance to the castle and gardens is 17 euros:

Add 5 euros if you would like to get a guided visit of the Le Notre gardens at 10:30AM:

** PRINT your tickets ** :)

 

There will be prizes for best costumes, best picnic table, etc. Contact me if you would like to prepare a bit in advance, it could be fun to raid a costume shop in Paris beforehand.

    Hi,

    I will join you at the entrance of the Château, it´s easier for me.
    What Time do you expect to be there?

    We'll be early, so I still hope we can hire some attires there...

    I have booked a visit of the garden at 2PM. Are there any others?

    See you tomorrow!

    I am interested in going in costume, if we can find them! Often for big events, these things sell out early!

      No I meant the costumes sell out, here I Paris. Every one rents early so little gets left over.

      Aha! Well at worse I have a few masks I can bring along. It will be fun to watch the others' costumes at least

      Yes carpooling gets too complicated and it is always nice to meet and greet in the train. Let me check the schedule and update the meeting point.
