The program offers several activities: a tasting of Louis-Joseph Papineau oolong variety teas, period games, readings of excerpts from Papineau’s correspondence in the gardens, a workshop on 19th century rules of etiquette, a tour of the Papineau gardens with the estate's gardener and characters dressed in period clothing recreating the era’s ambiance. In addition, you can dress up in a few accessories and take an old-fashioned photo!

To enhance the experience, a special theme will be featured at each of these Sunday garden parties: lacemaking, music and painting.
