What’s Happening at Goodwood

Wonderful Wednesday

October 20th | 6-8 PM

If you’ve never been to a Wonderful Wednesday you’re missing out! The bands keep getting better and the food is always delicious. Don’t miss fun, relaxation, and LIVE MUSIC featuring this month’s artists Lil Grizzly Boogie Band! Get ready to boogie on down to some rockin’ music by a fantastic group!

Come enjoy great food, and giant games! Goodwood will also be pouring sommelier-selected wines, craft beer, hard seltzer, and soft drinks. Please no BYOB or coolers at this event.

Wonderful Wednesday is being held on the recently improve historic roller rink next to the café. There are some tables and chairs for early birds but bring your chair if you want a front-row seat or choose to sit on the grassy lawn next to the rink.

Bring your family or grab a friend and get on over for a Wonderful Wednesday! Sponsored by Capital City Bank and Tri-Eagle Sales.

Wine Pour by the Pool

Tuesday October 12th | 5:30-7 PM

Great wine begins with great grapes! Come join Sommelier Amanda Morrison as she pours and teaches about her hand-selected wines. Guest will have the opportunity to taste wine from micro-wineries, enjoy Goodwood’s cool green space, and meet like minded individuals. What better way to end the summer than by the pool?

Each wine will be accompanied by a brief description of how the wines’ grapes and growing conditions impact what you are seeing, sniffing, and sipping. You might even want to take a bottle or two home with you.

Attendance will continue to be capped at 30 guests.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ongoing preservation efforts at Goodwood Museum & Gardens.

Virtual Goodwood’s Got Game Nights!

Wednesday | September 8th | 4:30-5:30 PM

Just because we have to social distance, does not mean we have to give up socializing!  This is an opportunity to create memories through laughter and celebrate new traditions with your loved ones. Goodwood’s Got Game night is back this November, and while not all games can be played virtually, there are quite a few for number-loving and word-loving gamers that can be modified to provide some community interaction and downright virtual fun.

Test your cognitive health by exercising those brain cells with these quick-thinking games and puzzles. See if you can remember the old days by recalling popular bands of the decades or historic events, figure out movies from emojis or famous people by their silhouettes, or unscramble words you would find on a grocery list. Games will be designed to wake up and use all the parts of the mind, while also boosting our brain health through social interaction.  Please register to receive details and the Zoom program link.

This virtual program is supported by the Knight Foundation, AARP, and Leon CARES as part of Goodwood’s Pathways to Wellness Initiative.
