Afternoon Tea Parties

Both Saturday and Sunday afternoon of the Exposition, we offer you the opportunity to relax with cups of tea, delicious finger foods, and delightful conversation with some of our guests of honor.

Each tea party table is offered a choice of teas: English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey, Assam, or Darjeeling. Food served  to accompany the tea consists of: British scone with jam and clotted cream, 2 cucumber sandwiches, 2 egg salad sandwiches, 2 mini eclairs, 2 lemon tartlets, cup of fruit, and 2 Chessmen cookies (for Tea Dueling).

Starting in 2025, purchasing tickets to have tea with our guests of honor has changed slightly. All persons at the Tea Party require a regular Afternoon Tea Party ticket ($35), but an additional UPGRADE ticket is required to reserve a spot at a special table with our guests of honor.
