*POSTPONED* Summer Speakeasy

Saturday, August 21, 2021
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
$45 Museum Member, $60 non-member (includes music, dancing, 1 drink ticket, snacks)

This event has been postponed due to the rapidly evolving public health situation. Ticketholders have been emailed  information about ticket exchange options; please check your spam folder if it has not arrived in your inbox, or click here to contact us.

It’s not a concert—it’s a party! Celebrate the last lazy days of summer at our summer benefit event. Live music, cocktails, and dancing bring to life the early decades of the 20th century. Sip one of our signature cocktails and dance the night away as you enjoy upbeat Great American Songbook standards from the Seits & Sounds jazz ensemble. Period-appropriate attire encouraged!

Overall capacity is limited; advance ticketing strongly encouraged.

Want to make it a night out with your crew? Add on a reserved table for four (+ $100) or eight (+ $150) ticketed guests, and provide  all your dancing partners with a guaranteed spot to rest their feet! (Please note: Table reservation does not include tickets; all guests must purchase admission to the event.)
