Gowns of Glensheen Gala: Unlocked

SATURDAY, August 10th  |  7:00 PM – 10:00 PM



This year’s theme: Gowns of Glensheen & a Pig Roast, or rather, a nice excuse to get dressed up with a quirky pig roast juxtaposition. Party at a mansion while enjoying a unique take on beachfront gala cuisine. Proudly celebrating our local culinary talents, newcomer Yker Acres will add to the event as this year’s caterer. Check out their farm to table story here. Here is a link to a little more info on the caterer –


Gala guests will be treated to a pig roast cooked on our very own Lake Superior beach rock. Dine on lakeside cuisine including fire roasted vegetables, meats, and other delicious delicacies.


Like before, two ‘Shots in the Dark’ and two cash bars will be hidden across the estate. (But, not too hidden because it is a party after all!) A new series of activities for our scavenger hunt is also waiting to be discovered. Find all of the locations to claim your prize.



Who’s ready for some silk and sequins? The Gowns of Glensheen exhibit displaying smashing party dresses, ravishing fur coats, and stunning wedding dresses will be a one of a kind highlight of this year’s gala that you won’t want to miss.



New this year, to support the preservation of Glensheen, a limited silent auction featuring both Glensheen favorites and new twists will be up for grabs. Dazzle your family and friends with a premier Flashlight-style Director’s tour, a Head Gardener Tour, a behind the scenes tour with the Collections Manager, and other bid worthy experiences.


Lastly, two live musicians will add to the magic of the night. One will even be on the pier! Alas, an exclusive, mini Concert on the Pier…but without the 2,000 people.



Of course, as in years past, all of Glensheen will be unlocked and yours to discover.
