Mad Hatter Tea Party – Tickets Available Now!

The Mad Hatter Tea Party. Enter TLC’s magnificent Abkhazi Garden and emerge down the rabbit hole for an evening bursting with laughs, wit and magic.

TLC’s first Mad Hatter Tea Party will be a spectacle you won’t want to miss! Themed drinks, games, live music and entertainment will bring to life Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Visit the 1950’s home of Prince Nicholas and Princess Peggy Abkhazi and encounter theatrical characters, play a round of croquet and indulge in delicious delicacies.

Come dressed as your favourite character from Wonderland and experience a spot of afternoon tea infused with magic. The Mad Hatter said it best, “it’s always tea-time.” The flight of fancy will include both live and silent auctions with prizes from umbrellas to whiskey tasting tours and everything in between.

Funds raised will support TLC efforts in protecting important wetlands, riparian areas, forests, greenbelts and habitat for species that call our province home. If you can’t attend the Mad Hatter Tea Party but are “curiouser and curiouser” about Abkhazi Garden, don’t dismay.

Visitors can view the historic site during regular operating hours from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily throughout the spring and summer seasons.
