Bring the whole family for tastings prepared by the chefs at Café Phipps, children’s Discovery tables with fun, hands-on activities, and a chance to see and learn about Phipps’ own mango tree.

This special event coincides with the International Mango Festival held annually in Delhi, India, which celebrates over 500 varieties of mangoes.

All activities are free with Phipps admission.
