THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 5:00-9:00 PM
!!History Alfresco is the Museum of Culpeper History’s annual fall fundraising event. Past events have included rare access to privately owned historic properties, catered food and drink, guest lecturers, trivia, music, and more.
This year’s History Alfresco will be held the evening of Thursday, October 13 at historic Andora Farm with hosts Tom and Pat Seay. The farm is perhaps most notable for having been worked by the frontiersman Daniel Boone during his brief residence in Culpeper County.
Enjoy an Oktoberfest themed dinner catered by the Bavarian Chef restaurant in Madison, show off your mastery of Culpeper history with our trivia contest, bid on an assortment of exciting products and experiences in our silent auction, and learn about the historic people and events that have touched historic Andora Farms. Music for the evening will be provided by local favorite Aubrey Driggers.
Our special guest speaker is writer and researcher George M. Pettie, author of the In the Land of Rob trilogy. This historical fiction series relates the lives of the early 20th century residents of the Blue Ridge Mountains around Rappahannock County in rich detail, with many of the characters and events that appear in the series taken from real life.
Tickets to the event will be $125.00/ person. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Registration for this event has closed. Limited seating is available; if you are interested in attending or in sponsorship opportunities please call 540-829-5954 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
