Advance Tickets for this event are now closed. Same-day tickets will be available for sale in Aunt Dealy’s House (small white cottage to the rear of the main building).
This exciting and engaging event offers children and families a special way to explore Körner’s Folly. Self-guided tours and a digital scavenger hunt allow visitors to discover the history, art, and architecture of the ca. 1880 home at their own pace, while encouraging observation and honing reading and listening skills.
For the first time in over two years, the Körner Family Revue Puppet Show will be performed for the public in the home’s third floor Cupid’s Park Theatre, featuring a lively cast that tells the story of the house and the family who made it a home.
Historic yard games, including badminton and croquet, will be set up on the lawn and ready for play along with a hands-on Sand Archaeology exploration station, plus book readings by local author Jeanie Martin.
Art activities for the young and the young at heart will be set up on the home’s outdoor porches, and the Kernersville-based Circus Daze troupe will be on hand with fabulous face painting. For those who need a little extra glitter, Ms. Karen will be transforming guests at her fantastic fairy hair booth!
Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnics for a lunchtime break.
