Hyde Hall and Glimmerglass State Park Block Party
The Hyde Hall and Glimmerglass State Park Block Party has been rescheduled to its June 11th rain date.
We regret that we have to postpone The Hyde Hall and Glimmerglass State Park Block Party due to the weather forecast for this weekend. We are expecting a day of rain and potential thunderstorms which halts all outdoor activities in the area. We’ve concluded that we could not provide the best possible experience for attendees this weekend with the predicted weather.
We enjoyed our enthusiastic response from the community and working with extraordinary people while creating the event and will still host the event on its rain date, Saturday, June 11th.
Thank you for your patience if this change caused any inconvenience. We look forward to introducing The Hyde Hall and Glimmerglass State Park Block Party on June 11th and greeting you throughout the season!
On Saturday, June 11 (rescheduled from May 28) from 10am-3pm, Hyde Hall is collaborating with Glimmerglass State Park to present its first annual Block Party – a day full of free activities for everyone to enjoy. Nearly 20 local organizations will join the museum to help ring in the summer season in our area!

The fun continues throughout the day.

A full schedule of events will be available in next month’s E-newsletter.
