Annual Spring Summer Tour
Castle Green’s Summer open house is hosted by the Friend’s of Castle Green. Traditionally the first Sunday of June and experience the splendor of the Castle Green! The Friends of the Castle Green was formed in 1993 as a support group for the historic Castle Green. The purpose of the Friends was to raise funds for historic restoration to the standards of the Secretary of Interior and to raise awareness of the significance and beauty of this important building in the history of Pasadena.
Explore the original Moorish and Turkish Rooms, Grand Salon, Palm Court, Lobby with the Grand Staircase and the fully restored Bridge interior plus visit many private units. Listen to experts discuss the history of the building and see our pop-up museum of artifacts from the Castle Green archives, including the castings of the “grotesques” and the decorative plasterwork used to restore the Bridge exterior. Sip lemonade on the veranda and enjoy live entertainment.
