June 10 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
Mystery, magic, music, time travel, and who knows, maybe a sea monster! Join us in your best costume suitable for time travel, or come as you are to enjoy small plates, cocktails.
Norman Rockwell Museum’s annual fundraising gala will offer a sparkling night of the unexpected, the mysterious, the coincidental, the puzzling, the unique, the surprising, the impossible, the unforgettable.
A wondrous world inspired by the art of Tony Sarg, master showman, illustrator, and puppeteer, whose exhibition is featured this summer and fall. Creative cuisine, mystical drinks, parades, performances, and puzzles. Costumes that reflect flights of fancy and imagination encouraged. All under a tent and on the magnificent grounds of Norman Rockwell Museum.
A special music performance by Tony/Academy Award/Pulitzer Prize nominee Bob Telson and Friends will be featured.
Bob Telson and Friends is a special ensemble coming together for this event.
