Founder’s Guided Evening Trail Walk: The First Twenty Years

November 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Founders Evening Walk

Enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres and an intimate guided trail walk with founder, Ralph Crispino.

I-Park is celebrating its 20th Anniversary and is pleased to welcome the public to their Founder’s Guided Trail Walk: The First 20 Years, on Friday, November 5 from 5:00 until 7:00 pm. This intimate event, to benefit the non-profit I-Park Foundation, will feature a visit to the archives room and a walk along their unique system of art/nature trails. Ralph will offer insights into I-Park’s evolution from concept to master plan to execution. View the original master plan from 1994, other research and planning documents along with the town’s approved expansion plans for the future. You’ll get the behind-the-scenes skinny on the art, the artists, the land and I-Park’s plans for the future. While the walk will be guided, the conversation will be led by your observations and questions. Guests will receive one of I-Park’s 20th Anniversary posters.

To assure a meaningful, personalized experience, only 20 tickets will be available for this event.

Please be sure to wear closed toe, flat shoes/boots. High heels are not recommended.

The schedule for the evening is as follows:
• 5:00 to 5:15: Guests arrive and prosecco will be served in the courtyard.
• 5:15: Guided group walk begins. Please call or text 860-306-0636 if you’re running late.
• 6:15: The walk concludes in the Outdoor Performance Area (weather permitting) with drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Guests are welcome to stay on for as long as they like to ask follow-up questions.

After the event, I-Park encourages you to head out for dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants in our area.

All proceeds will go to support the non-profit I-Park Foundation’s international artists-in-residence program.
