A Night at the Museum Gala, next to be held on January 30, 2020 is our main fundraiser and a party not to miss! At this event, the museum unveils a new exhibit and attendees are the first to enjoy it. The 2020 gala will feature the Saga of the Acadians, an original collection of 15 oil paintings by George Rodrigue depicting the Acadian journey from France to Nova Scotia in the 17th century, from Nova Scotia to Louisiana during the Grand Dérangement of 1755, and finally the first official return visit from Southwest Louisiana to Grand Pré in the 1930s.
The gala also highlights the food of the best regional restaurants as well as a silent auction and a live auction featuring priceless trips, private dinners, original works of art and more. The theme this year is “Party with Mardi Gras Magic” and you won’t believe the auction items we are offering.Place your name on our mailing list to “be in that number” for the social gathering of 2020.
