A REQUEST TO ALL BRIDES, GROOMS, LIMOUSINE DRIVERS/COMPANIES AND PHOTOGRAPHERS;
If you are considering Tarrywile Park and Mansion as the location for your wedding photo's or quick ceremony at the gazebo please call the office first to ensure that we do not have a wedding already scheduled for that date. Tarrywile Mansion event paying rentals have priority use of the gazebo, grape arbor and upper and lower parking lots. It is because of these rentals Tarrywile Park and Mansion is able to remain the beautiful property that it is, so please be considerate of our request.

The Mansion had it's first event of the month this past Sunday. Despite the rainy weather Kathleen and Sean pulled of an incredible Communion celebration. The food was provided by Rosie Tomorrows, coincidentally owned by Sean, so they couldn't go wrong. I hope the Communion girl had a great time.
Thank you for choosing Tarrywile Mansion as the venue for your daughter's special day.
Two other events rounded out our month of April; a customer appreciation party hosted by DOW Wealth Management Company and the March of Dimes 5k race/walk and fundraiser. Both events went off without a hitch and we are grateful to be chosen as the venue for both your these events.

We're sending a big thank you out to Sal and Ellen who continually support Tarrywile Park and Mansion by booking their family parties and events at the Mansion.

Sam Crews Memorial. Many of you have asked if the Park would be doing a memorial for Sam. We talked with his family we will be erecting a bench in his honor. Anyone wishing to make a donation in his memory towards the bench, can send a donation to Tarrywile Park, 70 Southern Blvd., Danbury CT or just stop in to the Park office (located on the second floor of the Mansion). Or if you wish, donations can also be made in Sam's name to the Victory Christian Center. Once the bench is erected, we will have a weekend dedication ceremony and will publish details here on our website.
