Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Aug 19 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

Archaeology Day @ Historical Society of Glastonbury
Aug 21 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

On Monday, August 21st from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., the Historical Society of Glastonbury invites anyone twelve years or older to join Connecticut State Archaeologist Dr. Brian Jones and members of the Friends of the Office of State Archaeology (FOSA) at an authentic archaeological dig.

Join the professionals as they excavate the site of an original ca. 1693 house which is said to be the first home built in town after the establishment of Glastonbury. Historical records indicate that this frontier house was once protected by a palisade, which is quite a rare occurance in Glastonbury. The house was replaced by the current structure in 1850. The HSG excavation will examine areas around the house to identify evidence of life during the time of Benjamin Talcott and his family. Ground penetrating radar will also be demonstrated as we attempt to locate the palisade.

As a guest archaeologist you’ll learn the early history and geology of Glastonbury, basic techniques of identifying and preparing a dig site, and the general procedures of excavation. The majority of your day will involve partaking in an authentic archaeological dig. You will excavate in prepared grids, locating, sifting, identifying and cataloging your finds. Check one off your “bucket list” and become an active participant as history comes alive under your fingertips!

Space is limited and reservations are required. Student cost is $10, all others $20. Bring snacks, lunch, plenty to drink and be sure to wear closed shoes.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Sep 2 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

Her first book, a collection of letters that she edited, was Can Anything Beat White?: A Black Family’s Letters. Her second is At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Sep 23 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

Our audiences have been asking us for years to bring Garrison Keillor to the Garde stage. We are thrilled that The Garde’s 2017-18 season will opening on Saturday, October 7 at 8 pm with Garrison Keillor, host of A Prairie Home Companion, and two old friends from the earliest days of his show, Robin and Linda Williams, for two hours of harmony and humor.

From July 6, 1974 through July 1, 2016, Garrison Keillor created and hosted one of the most popular radio variety shows of all time, A Prairie Home Companion, for some 3.5 million listeners on 700 public radio stations coast to coast and beyond. His many books include Lake Wobegon Days, The Book of Guys, Pilgrims: A Wobegon Romance, Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny, and The Keillor Reader (Viking). In 2006, Keillor played himself in the movie adaptation of his show, a film directed by Robert Altman.

For more than four decades now, Robin & Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism. As live performers they are second to none. But as gifted songwriters their original songs have been covered by such country music greats as Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and The Seldom Scene.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Oct 8 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.
