Pay homage to the humble, hardworking grass family. Grasses are everywhere at Wave Hill and throughout the world. We eat grasses—our favorite and most basic foods come from grains like corn, oats, rice, wheat, rye, barley and millet, all of which are really grasses! Grasses are used to build baskets, brooms and even homes! Instruments are even made from grasses! And of course, grasses are beautiful to behold.
We’re celebrating this super plant family with all-American music, art-making, guided tours, grassy games and more. Admission to the grounds is free all weekend, thanks to the generous support of Target.
