Privateer Bash!

Saturday, February 29, 2020
6:30 – 10:00 pm

Avast! Don’t miss the Swashbuckling Party at the Connecticut River Museum

Arr” you in? Come down and show us your swagger on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 6:30 – 10:00 pm. Grab your sword, hoist your sails and get to the Privateers’ Bash, presented by Gosling’s Rum, at the Connecticut River Museum. Come in costume (or not!) and let off a bit of winter steam. Relive riverfront history at the fourteenth annual Privateer Bash; a playful nod to the privateers who made their wealth by plundering foreign ships of their valuable cargo. Grog, grub, music, and dancing will fill the floors of our exhibit galleries from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.  Treasure can be found with great prizes up for raffle, plus booty awarded for best costumes.

A $50 Privateer ticket includes hors d’oeuvres, grog, and one complimentary drink. Or take advantage of a two-ticket purchase deal and buy two Privateer tickets for just $85. A $75 Commodore ticket includes hors d’oeuvres and grog plus an open bar. All proceeds benefit the Connecticut River Museum.

Watch this spot to see the list of supporters for the Privateers Bash.
