Join us for a special dinner on June 17 at 7 pm ET at the National Historic Landmark Glessner House, designed by Olmsted friend and neighbor Henry Hobson Richardson. This is the home where Olmsted stayed when designing the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and a house tour will be part of our special evening.

The weekend will also include other activities. On the 18th, we’ll join the National Congress of the Carillonneurs Guild of North America to hear the Midwestern Debut of winning pieces in the Carillon Competition, Inspired by Olmsted. The concert will begin at 10 a.m. outside Rockefeller Chapel, adjoining the Midway Plaisance, and conclude with a special outdoor reception and private tours of Olmsted Parks.
