Louisville on the Lawn returns on August 24, 2019. Billed as a “Gilded Age Pop-Up Picnic,” the event takes place on the grounds of the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum in Old Louisville (1402 St. James Court).
Inspired by lawn parties of years gone by, guests are cordially invited to dress in their finest all-white attire and pack an upscale picnic supper to enjoy beneath the shade of Louisville’s Castle, all while listening to the soul-driven harmonies of Louisville’s Justin Paul Lewis.
There’ll be an open bar, silent auction, contests and prizes, with David “The Bluegrass Peasant” Domine serving as Louisville on the Lawn’s master of ceremonies in 2019. Liquid sponsors include Old 502 Winery, Old Louisville Brewery and Heaven Hill Distillery.
Old Louisville is America’s largest preservation district “featuring almost entirely Victorian architecture,” and the Conrad-Caldwell House a noted Richardsonian Romanesque residence.
Proceeds from “Louisville on the Lawn” will go towards preserving and restoring sections of The Conrad-Caldwell House as well as towards educational programming, so that we may continue to educate every young person that comes through our doors in new and innovative ways.
