Barnsdall Art Park is Throwing a Champagne, Oysters and Croquet Party on November 8th

October 26, 2015 by Christina Champlin

Want to spend an afternoon on the lawn of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House sipping cold champagne, slurping on oysters and playing a game of croquet.

Barnsdall Art Park’s Croquet, Champagne + Oysters fall fundraiser is back on Sunday, November 8, 2015.


Get competitive (this croquet is serious business) or just sit back and relax with sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills, The Observatory and the Hollywood Sign.

Guests can partake in a 3-flight sparkling wine tasting, available by Silverlake Wine and croquet will be sponsored by the Pasadena Croquet Association.

Local artisanal cheese purveyor, Say Cheese, will be offering guests an array of picnic baskets, available for pre-order with your ticket to be delivered to the park.

The Oyster Gourmet will be on hand shucking their flavorful selections of oysters and food trucks – Postcards Soul Fusion and Bar 1969 -will serve brunch. Guests are also welcome to bring their own blankets and picnics however, no outside alcoholic beverages will be permitted onto the grounds.

Cal King and KCRW DJ Wilcox will provide the tunes throughout the day.

No experience in croquet is required and there will be plenty of prizes during the event. Guests are encourage guests to don traditional white garb and hats (there’s a prize for favorite hat.)
