IN-PERSON 2022 May Day Celebration at the Katharine Hepburn Garden Party (Saturday, May 14th at 1:00 PM)

We are so excited to gather as a community of Bryn Mawr alums at the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza to celebrate May Day and Katharine Hepburn’s Birthday! This garden party will feature:

  • Speeches and festivities beginning promptly at 1:00 PM
  • Live music–songs of Katharine Hepburn’s era
  • Tours of the Katharine Hepburn Garden
  • Refreshments

This event is presented by the Friends of Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, the Turtle Bay Association, and the Bryn Mawr Club of New York City. Gather at the performance colonnade.

Kimberly Hawkey and the Era Gone Jazz Band will perform. “A delightfully fresh-voiced treat,” says “Irrepressibly cheery update on 30s and 40s sounds,” writes New York Music Daily.

The Club will provide traditional strawberries and cream and the Friends of Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza will provide Katharine Hepburn birthday cake.  The Bryn Mawr Club of New York City will have tables at the Pink Moose Café just off 47th and First Avenue and additional refreshments may be purchased at the Pink Moose Café.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
