The Brown’s arrival in Denver in 1894 converges with local and worldwide events that changed the way people interacted with the world. Margaret “Molly” Brown's travels to events like the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago helped to usher this global curiosity into Denver. The Under the Lens Series, in conjunction with The World is Changing Exhibit at the Molly Brown House Museum, playfully explores these world-changing topics across four evenings. 

On June 27, our Under the Lens topic looks at food at the Worlds Fair. Just like the new inventions, newer foods were served and marketed at expositions like the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Some of the items debuted, like pancake mix and shredded wheat, stuck with American menus. Let’s explore the foods that was served and may have been made popular at World’s Fairs in this Under the Lens program hosted at the historic home of Margaret "Molly" Brown.

Each Under the Lens event invites guests to experience this detailed look into aspects of the World’s Fair with snacks provided and a beverage with your ticket; adult beverages are available to those 21+.

This event is hosted at the Molly Brown House Museum at 1340 Pennsylvania Street.
