Having a great day is as easy as pie at Rokeby Museum’s annual Pie & Ice Cream Social. Come hungry, and plan to enjoy music and games on Sunday, Aug. 13, from 1-4 p.m.

Yards and yards of homemade pies, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, live music from Bob Recupero and Young Tradition Vermont, raffle baskets, croquet and badminton on the lawns are part of this special day. The historic house and museum exhibitions will be open to the public to explore as part of the event.

Admission to Pie Day, music, games, and museum exhibitions is free. Pie and ice cream is $8 per serving, $2 for ice cream and $1 for beverages. At the end of the event, if any pies are still available they will be sold for $20 each.
