New for summer 2019: Pursuit of Happiness Hour at Monticello!

Join us as we toast to summer on the historic West Lawn of Monticello. Local beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages—as well as gourmet picnic fare, courtesy of Farm Table, a Monticello café—will be available for purchase. Explore our gardens and enjoy stunning views from the mountaintop; it’s a Friday evening social gathering unlike any other!

Interested in going inside the house, too? Book a special Upper Floors Tour.

Also offered on July 12 and August 9.
