SAVE THE DATE – Saturday, May 18, 2024  – (11am-3pm)

2nd Annual Wickets & Wine


Hosted by Friends of Mountain View, Inc. Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation, Inc., and Roanoke City Parks & Recreation, this annual fundraising event creates an opportunity for you to dress in your croquet white linen shirts, pants, and dresses – with matching hats of course – to sip wine and sparkling while having a “mahvelous” time playing croquet on the lawns of Roanoke’s Historic Mountain View mansion.

As wickets dot the freshly mowed lawn of this historic estate, on the mansion’s front porch will be offered a selection of adult beverages, sodas, and water as this venue kicks off the long days of summer. Lunch will also be available.

The ticket price of $50 includes a boxed lunch, unlimited popcorn, croquet on the lawn and other lawn games, a guided tour of the first and second floor of the mansion, entry into a drawing for several door prizes, and more. You could even win a prize for best dressed! In addition, a cash/card bar will be available for adult beverages.


Event Sponsorship Opportunities:

Co-sponsored by Friends of Mountain View (FOMV) and the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation (RVPF), this annual event was a huge success last year with over 80 people attending and more than $7,000 raised towards much-needed repairs at this local historic landmark. Renovation plans for Mountain View are moving forward as part of the Mountain View Facilities and Grounds Master Plan project and community support continues to grow.
