Experience a traditional Victorian tea in the fine tradition of Sarah Avery and Phoebe Edson, the storied Edson Sisters. Through a long-awaited partnership, this year's tea celebrates the family at both the ladies' homes, nestled next door to each other in Old Town Fort Collins. Take a catered tea and hors d'oeuvres at the regal Edwards House, Phoebe's 1904 home and tour the lush grounds, gardens, and interior of the historic 1879 Avery House. Sip tea and indulge in sweet and savory bites and enjoy the Avery House’s new exhibit Mabel Avery: a Portrait in Garmenture.

Delicious tea and food are catered, and there are two seatings, at 10 am and 2 pm, with docent-guided tours throughout the day.

Proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction go toward the nonprofit Poudre Landmarks Foundation's mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area.
