Join us for Shaker Soirée, a garden party with food, friends, libations, and music!

All guests will have full access to beer, wine, signature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts in an intimate garden setting. A pre-event champagne celebration brings you unlimited champagne, a behind-the-scenes museum tour, and garden party admission. Cocktail tables and limited seating will be available throughout the evening. This year's event will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on museum grounds. Garden party attire encouraged.

This new event is a loving homage to our former Gracious Gardens tours and a nod to the Shaker Historical Society's first planned social event, a community garden party, in 1948. Proceeds benefit the Shaker Historical Society's programs, exhibits, and collections that link the past with the present to inspire the future.
