2023 Pie & Ice Cream Social
Sunday, August 13, 2023, 1–4 pm
Slice of Pie & Ice Cream: $8
We Love Pie! Join us as we celebrate Summer and community with Rokeby’s Annual Pie & Ice Cream Social. As in previous years, there will be yards and yards of homemade pies, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, live music from Bob Recupero and Young Tradition Vermont, raffle baskets, croquet, and badminton on the back lawns, and a chance to explore the historic home, grounds, and exhibits at Rokeby.
The Historic Robinson Home will be open from 1 pm–3 pm. Our volunteer guides will be in the house to answer questions and provide insight. Visitors can check in with a guide at the front porch. Please note, there is a maximum occupancy of 20 people inside the house. No food or drink will be allowed in the house.
Slice of Pie with Ice Cream: $8
Ice Cream: $2
Full Pie (if available at end of event): $25
1 Ticket: $5
5 Tickets: $20
Bring your family and friends and spend the afternoon eating pie and reconnecting with the community — a delicious way to support the Museum.
Young Tradition Vermont, a program of Vermont Folklife, presents traditional music and original compositions performed by Eleanor Freebern, Ari and Eli Glasser, and Emma Taylor McCallum. These talented musicians have recently returned from performing for a week in Cape Breton as a part of Young Tradition Vermont’s Touring Group program.
Thank you to our sponsors of this year’s Pie & Ice Cream Social: Pomerleau Real Estate and Vermont Mutual Insurance Group. Their very generous support allows us to offer free admission to the Museum’s exhibits and grounds.
Thank you also for the additional support from: Ben & Jerry’s, Maxine Davis, King Arthur Baking Company, OLLY, Oriental Trading, Poorhouse Pies, Seventh Generation, Twincraft Skincare, Vermont Bookshop, Vermont Teddy Bear, Lee Weisman, and Rokeby’s many volunteer pie bakers!
Wanna Help Make Pies??
If you are able to donate a pie (or two, or twelve! ;), please fill out this form, and someone from the museum will be in touch with more details soon.
Our goal for this year is 65 pies (!), and we can always use new bakers to help out. Please feel free to forward the above link to any talented baker friends, neighbors, colleagues, etc, who may be interested in helping out this year.
