9th Annual American Doll and Teddy Bear Tea Party
Sunday July 16, 2017 at 1:00pm 
Rain Date - Sunday July 123 2016 at 1:00pm 
Eden Woolley House, 703 Deal Road, Ocean, NJ 07712
Each July for the past eight years, young girls have brought their dolls and favorite adults to the Eden Woolley House for the annual American Doll Tea. This year, the popular event is set for 1 to 3:30, Sunday, July 16, (rain date, July 23). Guests who have also visited the American Girl Stores know it as the best value around!

The grounds of the Woolley House are dotted with tents and tables where the girls complete a custom-made craft with the help of our teen docents and at the end of the day, enjoy homemade, child friendly treats, lemonade, and iced tea. 

The girls hear an original story of the sisters who lived in the Wolley House in the 1800s. They tour the Museum, filled for the day with doll collections and living history demonstrations. A fully stocked Doll Shop offers hand-made doll clothes and accessories.

Tickets are just $30 for an adult and one child (5 years and older). Additional children are $10 each; additional adults, $25. Tickets go on sale June 1st. Seating is limited and reservations are a must. Call 732-531-6040 or the Museum at 732-531-2136 to save your spot.

There is limited seating. Reservations are a must.
