Annual Gala Day: 1920’s Vintage Lawn Party & Open House

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tickets Starting at: Free

GALA DAY IS BACK! Join us for our annual summer fundraiser “Gala Day”! The very first “Gala Day & Garden Party Bazaar” was held at the Rebecca Nurse Homestead in 1912 right after becoming a Museum, and they continued to be held annually through the 1920’s! It was a way to welcome the community to explore the newly restored historic house, learn about local history, and just enjoy the beautiful grounds on a summer day. This also marks the 10th year since our first Gala Day reenactment! This year we are traveling back to the 1920s. Come experience our version of Gala Day, complete with the original entrance fee of only 25¢
We encourage you to come dressed in your best 1920s attire and spend the day with us! Guests are welcome and encouraged to bring their own snacks or a picnic lunch. Some light refreshments will also be available for purchase.
-Explore the home of Rebecca Nurse and its beautiful grounds.
-Listen to popular music from the 1920’s
-Watch silent “moving pictures” in the Meetinghouse
-Try your hand at playing period-style lawn games. We have Croquet and Bocce. (But feel free to bring your own lawn games as well.)
