    2017 Pansy Day – coming April 8th!

    Join us for the 35th annual Pansy Day – a day to celebrate Spring, Needham history, and Needham’s Official Flower.

    This year we have a whole schedule of new events and activities for both kids and adults –

    For Kids -there will be Pony Rides (12:45-2:45), lawn games, Story Time (1:30-3:00), a scavenger hunt, and face painting (all day).

    For Adults we have Pansies (of course!) in flats as well as planters and baskets (Easter is on its way!); planting and garden workshops (11:00-12:00 and 1:00 – 2:00); and exhibits, including a quilt show and the Needham Art Association gallery show.

    The Schoolhouse will become the Needham General Store, with baked goods, penny candy, the gift shop, hot dogs, a popcorn machine, and free coffee.

    The pansies are almost here, and we are ready to go!  Pansies will be on sale at the Society from about April 4th until April 17th.  We  encourage everyone in Needham to grow pansies in celebration of our town!

    Pansy Day will be on April 8th, 2017 , from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.    All are welcome – the event is free and open to the public.
