Old Westbury Gardens is one of the most beautiful destinations on Long Island. With its historic mansion and incredibly gorgeous grounds (featured in movies from Love Story and North by Northwest to Hitch and American Gangster, and in television shows including Sex and the City and, most recently, Royal Pains), it’s a great place to spend the day, and there’s ALWAYS a breeze.

So, bring a picnic and a blanket or chair (or not – there are benches and chairs available – a hat is advised, as shade is limited) and enjoy an hour of great music in an enchanting setting. And, while you’re there, take a tour of the house and/or gardens – the docents are both knowledgeable and welcoming. In the event of rain (or significant threat thereof), we’ll be in the lovely Red Ballroom, so please don’t let bad weather keep you away (you can still take a tour of the house, too)!

The concert is free. Admission to the Gardens (including tours) is $10 for adults; $8 for mature adults (over 62); $5 for children 7-17; and free for children under 7.
