What’s Happening at Goodwood

Pouring on the Porch
Wine Tasting

Thursday, June 3rd | 5:30-7 PM

Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens said, “the good ol’ American front porch seems to stand for positivity and openness; a platform from which to welcome or wave farewell; a place where things of significance could happen.”

Come see what things of significance can happen on Goodwood’s front porch when you share it with sommelier Amanda Morrison as she pours and presents four fine wines. 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 be capped at 30 guests.

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

Wonderful Wednesday

June 9th | 6-8 PM

Come hear live music by The Adventures of Annabelle Lyn and dinner from local food trucks. Goodwood will also be pouring sommelier-selected wines, craft beer, hard seltzer, and soft drinks.

This community event is being held on the recently improved historic roller rink next to the café. There are some tables and chairs for early birds but bring you own chair if you want a front row seat or choose to enjoy the grassy lawn adjact to the rink. Life-size chess and giant checkers will be set out if you are feeling in the mood for some friendly competition.

Bring your family or grab a friend and get on over for a wonderful Wednesday!

Virtual Goodwood’s Got Game Nights!

Wednesday | June 9th | 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.
