Jane Austen Weekends

It’s not rare to find Regency balls or Jane Austen styled in-person events in the US; what is rare to find repeating events long into the year and beyond.

However, the Governor’s House in Hyde Park has done just that. A many year long event, Jane Austen Weekends are sure to not disappoint. Each weekend is themed, some with weekends in character, there are all sorts of entertainments be it for the lady or gentlemen from talks, book and movie clubs, and trivia events to suit her fancy and fly fishing and riding to suit his.

The schedule is as follows:

Series 14: Pride and Prejudice
July 29 – 31
September 9 – 11

Series 15: Sense and Sensibility
August 12 – 14
September 2 – 4 (Labor Day weekend)
January 20 – 22, 2023

Weekend in Character: August 5 – 7

Series 16: Emma
January 27 – 29, 2023
and other dates to be announced
