Hors D'oeuvres


It wouldn’t be a French event without an array of mouth-watering cheeses.


France is well known for their decadent pastries, so make sure to sample a few as you explore the estate.

The Drinks


What better event that the Glensheen Gala to have a champagne tower?


No French tour would be complete without sampling wines from across the country.

Cash Bars

Back by popular demand, Glensheen will have cash bars dispersed throughout the estate. In an effort to ensure each guest is able to get the exact drink desired, each bar has been carefully positioned to ensure ease and access.

Coffee - Late Night Pickup

Stay energized throughout the night with some of Duluth’s finest roasts. Provided by Duluth Coffee Company, the Glensheen Gala coffee bar is the perfect complement to any of the night’s fine foods and desserts.


Park offsite and ride the shuttle to Glensheen. The shuuttle, running on a continuous loop, will bring guests onto the estate via the West Gate and main driveway.

Once the night is over, take the shuttle back to your car as a perfect way to end the evening.
