A Night at the Museum Gala

Loading Events

Thursday, January 28, 2016 is the date of the Annual Night at the Museum Gala.  It is the premier social event of the year in New Iberia and the main fundraiser for the Museum. Your generous contribution will help us grow and expand, providing the region with even more educational opportunities and unique gathering spaces.

The Gala theme this year is a preview of our community’s plans for the inaugural Dave Robicheaux Hometown Literary Festival being planned for April 2016 in New Iberia. Throughout the night we will offer attendees a chance to “visit” with Dave Robicheaux and friends while dining on scrumptious food from our generous regional restaurants.  As usual, our live and silent auctions will  include items and experiences available ONLY through the Bayou Teche Museum auction. Senator Fred Mills has again graciously accepted our auctioneer invitation.  OUR SPECIAL PREVIEW EXHIBITS unveiled at the Gala are THE SAGA OF THE ACADIANS, 15 original oil paintings by George Rodrigue, as well as our new permanent CIVIL WAR exhibit, researched and formatted by local historian, Shane Bernard.  The Gala has become New Iberia’s premier social event  as well as the Museum’s main fundraiser, so send your form back as soon as possible to reserve your tickets.

For replacement forms please stop by the Museum at 131 E. Main Street or call (337) 606-5977.
