The Deering Estate at Cutler will offer $5 after-hour admission on the first Wednesday of each month beginning on Nov. 7 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. as part of its “Winter Wednesdays” program. Sometimes the most beautiful time on the estate is after hours. The rich colors of evening reflect off the boat turning basin, flocks of birds gracefully swoop in to roost for the night in a nearby tree island, and a simple peace takes over the historic houses.
Bring a loved one, family, friends, a glass of wine or a picnic and join in for “Winter Wednesdays” on the main lawn of the estate. Chef David Schwadron Catering and Joanna’s Marketplace are official picnic providers for the Deering Estate at Cutler.
The main grounds of the estate will open to guests on the first Wednesday of each month for a reduced rate of $5 and free for Deering Estate Foundation members. There will be limited access to the buildings; only restrooms will be open. Guests will be able to meander through the public outdoor areas and enjoy the evening.
