Afternoon Tea at the Netherland Inn

June 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Enjoy afternoon tea at the Netherland Inn

After being on a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Netherland Inn’s annual high tea event returns later this month.

Be sure to wear your fanciest hat and enjoy a typical 1800s afternoon of high tea at the Netherland Inn. The event will be held from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. on June 11 in the second floor dining room of the Inn (2144 Netherland Inn Road).

“The event is a way for the community to experience what the Netherland Inn was like in the 1800s and if someone doesn’t have a fancy hat, we will provide one for them,” said Glenda Bobalik, chair of the Netherland Inn Steering Committee. “Tickets are limited so we’re encouraging everyone to reserve your spots now.”

The event will include tea, finger sandwiches, scones, cakes, fruits and mints. There will be a live musical performance by the Holley Ladies Flute Ensemble and photographs will be taken at each table and emailed to you.

A tour of the Inn will take place following the tea. The cost is $20 per person and tickets are limited to 50 spots. Make checks payable to the Netherland Inn and sent to Jan Mather, 3584 Crest Rd., Kingsport, TN 37664.

To pay over the phone call Glenda Bobalik at 423-483-0932. For more information contact Jan Mather at 423-276-6200 or by email at jcmath01@gmail.com.

About the City of Kingsport

Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 55,400) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,650-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
