Tickets are still available for Waveny Park Conservancy’s second annual Tailgate Party on Saturday, October 7th, 4:00 pm – 10:30 pm in Waveny Park. This fun event will be held at Waveny and is limited to the first 160 cars to register for parking spaces behind Waveny House. Each car registration includes tickets for up to six people. Extra guest tickets are available for $50 per person. Attendees should bring their own food and beverages – there will be prizes for the best and most creative tailgates. Cars will be admitted to the area between 4 pm and 5 pm and spaces will be assigned on a first come first served basis. Parking spots will not be available for purchase the night of the event and no walk-ins will be permitted. Tickets are $500 per car and include a Waveny Conservancy Supporter Recognition. Registration may be done online HERE. The entirety of the donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law as no goods or services are being provided in exchange for the donation.
The event will feature a live band. During the course of the evening, guests may gather around the large firepit, while dancing and also viewing a live college football game on a giant screen. A Giving Tree will provide guests the opportunity to support the Waveny Park Conservancy (WPC) further with specific projects. Special WPC merchandise, such as hats, will be available for sale at the concert. Before the concert, the Chairman of the WPC, Bob Seelert will briefly speak about the mission of the organization. The event is co-chaired by Scott Gress, Brock Saxe and Tucker Murphy in partnership with the Town of New Canaan and the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce.
The Waveny Park Conservancy’s (WPC) focus is on restoring and enhancing the 130 acres of open space surrounding Waveny House. The current areas of focus are: restoration of the pond; enhancement of the entryway from South Avenue; restoration of the formal gardens in collaboration with the Garden Club; renovation of the Cornfields; and enhancement of the woodlands, forests, and trails. This event also celebrates the completion of the entryway enhancement, namely the new walking trail. The WPC is working in partnership with the Town of New Canaan to ensure that Waveny Park thrives in perpetuity.
