Last Few Days to Order Your Tickets for The Versailles Area Museum’s Annual Historic Dinner

Over the past for years we have strived to bring you unique dining experiences. From 1814 Fort Greenville outpost, to the 1830 German arrival, from the days of prohibition, to 1950’s fun on Main Street. These diners are designed to teach, but also be a fun opportunity to step into a time capsule and turn the calendar back!

On Sunday Evening, April 8th at 4:30 p.m. we will welcome our guests to the Father Jackle Room at the Versailles Knights of Columbus Hall for our historic dinner, this year featuring “An Evening in France”. The room will be transformed into a barn located somewhere in France in the early 18th Century. The Revolution is over, but farmers are beginning to talk about moving to this new America that Lafayette spoke about.

Using an exciting new caterer, we will have a fantastic menu to reflect various regions of France.

For our history portion we will have reenactors portray former members of the French Aristocracy, who now are working as a lace maker and his assistant to keep their family fed. They will tell their story of why America might be where they may seek a future and a new home.

Our decor will reflect an old barn in perhaps Alsace or Normandy. Its charm comes from the use of the ordinary that will give we guests a glimpse of France in an earlier time long before the World Wars could ever be imagined.

Also, we will have several local guests whom have traveled to France and will briefly share their recollections of the country and the people.

Music of the period, along with food, glorious food and wine will make this a sparkling evening not to be missed.

Tickets are on sale now and are limited at $50.00 each or $45.00 for VAM members. You may obtain yours by contacting the museum at 937-526-4222. A 6oz. glass of wine is included in each dinner package as well as a dessert wine, with a nominal charge for additional wines.

For this historic dinner we will use communal seating as was the custom and truly reflect the time. If you wish to sit with friends, please include names when ordering your tickets. But no one will feel alone so just come and be enveloped in the warmth of France!

With your attendance you continue to support the Versailles Area Museum and our programs. We will look for you at this fun and worthwhile event!
