Dog Days of Summer @ The Hermitage
June 17, 2021 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
What better way to spend the Dog Days of Summer than with a visit to The Hermitage with your favorite pup?
Join Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage on the third Thursday of the month, June through August, for after-hours access to this National Historic Landmark. Dog Days of Summer will feature live music, local wine and beer from Natchez Hills Winery and 1,120 acres—plenty of space for you and your four-legged best friend to run, walk and play, all while learning about the important history of this site.
A special doggie park will be available for off-leash fun, and for those who need a cool down, we will have wading pools for the pups.
The Hermitage mansion will not be open for tours, but interpreters will be available on the porches of the mansion to answer questions. Your ticket does include access to the Andrew Jackson Center, including the introductory film, Jackson, and exhibit, as well as to the First Hermitage and Alfred’s Cabin (sorry, no canine friends are allowed inside buildings).
Please bring bags to dispose of pet waste.
