6th Annual Vanderbilt Lobster Fest
July 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$125
For the sixth year, the Vanderbilt Museum will hold its annual summer fund-raising event, Lobster Fest, on Saturday, July 22, in the Celebration Tent overlooking the bay and Long Island Sound. This is the Vanderbilt’s largest fund-raising event and benefits the Museum’s education programs.
The Lobster Fest celebrates William K. Vanderbilt II’s passion for the sea, and his landmark circumnavigations of the globe, during which he collected thousands of marine specimens, some of them first-time discoveries, for his museum.
The menu will include passed hors d’oeuvres, whole steamed lobsters, grilled skirt steak, steamed clams, and roasted sweet corn. As an added attraction – enjoy craft beer and sangria while witnessing the preparation of a 5-foot Paella. Plus…a deejay will be spinning tunes to keep the party hopping!
Tickets: $125 per person, $115 for members. Rain or shine in the Celebration Tent.
