Tour, Toast & Taste
Saturday, June 8 2019

Join us at the amazing Maryland treasure "Wye House" for an wonderful night of food, drink, friends and bidding. Tour, Toast & Taste (aka TTT) is Pickering Creek's annual gala event that directly supports the education programs of the Center. Live Music by Justin Ryan, Food by Ken's Creative Kitchen, and Live Birds make the evening even better. 

Home to 12 generations of the Loyd Family (a founding father of Maryland) Wye House is one of the oldest homes on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and among the most famous plantations in America. Built in the late 18th century, the main house is a grand, two-storey structure that bridges late-Georgian and early-Federalist architecture. Its agricultural fields, orchards, and gardens once sprawled across 42,000 acres.  Read More about the house here.  For tickets, and more information about the event on June 8th visit
