Iowa’s First Gentleman Kevin Reynolds will host a barbecue at Terrace Hill on Thursday, July 11 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Guests will get a chance to meet and chat with the first gentleman, explore the first and second floors of the Residence, wander the gardens – which are truly lovely in the summer – and enjoy delicious food prepared by the Terrace Hill chef. 

The menu will consist of a traditional summer spread of steak burgers, old fashioned brats, a variety of summer salads featuring produce from the Terrace Hill garden, and desserts.

Reservations are $40 per guest + processing fees and are available on Eventbrite at or by calling the Terrace Hill office at 515-281-7205. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and ticket sales will end on Wednesday, July 10 at 4:30 pm.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Terrace Hill Partnership, the sole non-profit organization that supports necessary conservation and restoration projects for the Terrace Hill building and grounds.
