The park-like grounds of Spiegel Grove have been a gathering spot since the time 19th President Rutherford Hayes took up permanent residence at his wooded country estate. "GroveFest" continues that tradition . The multi-faceted event takes place throughout the grounds of Spiegel Grove. Families, singles, couples, and senior citizens can mingle and enjoy a free "Music at the Grove" Bluegrass concert, free "Collectible Cars at the Grove" car show and free to watch "Croquet at the Grove" tournament. The allure of an evening gala is in store for those who express their support for the Hayes Presidential Center by purchasing a ticket to the "Bid at the Grove" fundraising auction.
