High Tea at the Denver Public Library

You are cordially invited to high tea at the Denver Public Library on Saturday, January 25 at 2 p.m. We’ll get dressed up and have some tea. Oh what fun this party will be! Join us for delicious tea, cookies, a story, and a craft.

January is National Hot Tea month and you are invited to celebrate with the Children's Library at the Central Library. We'll serve a variety of hot and iced teas and cookies. There will be music, a tea related read aloud and a craft. This year the party will also highlight teas from around the world.

The party will be fun and educational, with an opportunity to sneak in a lesson about table manners. We'll also use some unique vocabulary words your child might not hear often in everyday conversation, like doily, pitcher, and etiquette. Come meet other tea-lovers and spend an afternoon making lasting memories with your children.

This event is for children ages 4-12 and their parents/caregivers.

Registration is required. To RSVP call 720-865-1306 or email CHLRef@denverlibrary.org.

This is great for the kids but how about us adults. I know plenty of women who would love to do this also. There are tons of Brits that live in Denver that could of help & you would of loved it.
Plz remember there are ADULTS @ the public library too!


Thanks for your interest in the tea party and events at the library. Check out the events calendar at http://denverlibrary.org/events for more information about adult programs. Bear Valley and Broadway have had Downton Abbey tea parties in the recent past. Keep an eye out for more events like those. We also offer lots of cooking programs that you can find out about at the events calendar.

Feel free to email any specific program suggestions to fclmybranch@denverlibrary.org

In the spirit of kindness and for tea lovers everywhere, I humbly offer a semantic correction even though, no matter what you call it, your afternoon tea sounds delightful. Regrettably, the term "high tea" to describe it is inaccurate. I was raised in a British territory where afternoon tea was sometimes referred to as low tea but high tea is actually supper. :)


Reba, thanks for pointing that out. I have heard about the difference between high and low tea before, but I completely forgot. I'll keep that in mind for next year's party!

Thank you for hosting such as wonderful event! My daughter is already asking when she can come back for tea at the Library. You all did a great job!


I'm so glad you and your daughter enjoyed the party. We had a great time too! Thanks for coming and thanks for letting us know that you enjoyed the experience. We don't plan on hosting another tea party until next January, but keep your eye on the events calendar (http://denverlibrary.org/events) for other fun happenings.
