Memberships will be sold 30 minutes before the concert, with prices beginning at just $35 for an individual yearly membership or $50 for a family. Special thanks to Sanilac Consortium for the Arts for their financial support of our concert series.
The date for this year's party is Sunday, July 22nd
The same family will be catering the meal as last year. Devin Scillian of Channel 4 News will be returning as our Master of Ceremonies, and Nuclassica has already been booked to provide their fabulous entertainment as well. If you aren't familiar with Nuclassica they are a string ensemble from Detroit and you may view one of their videos below.
This year all tickets are $80. The gates open at 4:30. You will be able to visit, check out the silent auction items, enjoy wine and hours d'oeuvres and check out the beautiful grounds of the Museum Village. Dinner will be served at about 6:15. Due to the caterer needing a hard count at least 48 hours ahead of the party, No tickets will be available at the door. We regret that all ticket sales must be in advance.
There will be no more than 400 tickets sold and this dinner always sells out, so please, visit the museum and buy tickets early. For your convenience, a web page has been set up for those prefer to purchase their tickets online.
Sanilac County Historic Village & Museum is very pleased to be

anything else that captures their fancy. From 5-5:30pm the finished
