Father’s Day comes just as summer is filling our hearts. Celebrate Dad with a memorable day in vibrant gardens. Spend the day together with a special Family Art Project, a guided walk in the gardens and a free session of community yoga.

Enjoy the very rare opportunity to picnic on the Wave Hill House Lawn. Bring your own feast or purchase a delicious picnic curated by our exclusive partner Great Performances. Limited, first come, first served seating will also be available in Armor Hall for picnic purchasers. If you would like to picnic on the Wave Hill House Lawn, you may bring your own blanket and outdoor folding chairs.

Reserve your own custom picnic basket by June 11.
Pick-up your basket Sunday, June 16, between 11:00AM – 3:00PM
