Queen's Birthday Celebration

June 12, 2021 - High Noon

Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden

You are cordially invited to join Lady Victoria of Essex for a Birthday Celebration of Queen Elizabeth II. 

We will make this a photo-taking-opportunity at the famed Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden, as we stroll amidst the fragrant roses and take photos of each other in our costumes. 

After a “turn about the gardens,” those who are interested in participating in an indoor lunch at 1:30pm, can do so at the famed Blue Star Cafe & Pub, just east  from the rose garden.  While there is a small section for outdoor diners (not reserved), Lady V has already made a reservation in her name for a table of 6 for indoor diners.
