The Vanderbilt Lobster Fest, the Museum’s sixth annual summer fund-raising event, is set for Saturday, July 22, from 6:00 to 10:00 in the Celebration Tent on the Great Lawn overlooking Northport Bay and Long Island Sound. This is the Vanderbilt’s largest fund-raising event and benefits the Museum’s education programs.
The Lobster Fest celebrates Mr. Vanderbilt’s passion for the sea, and his landmark circumnavigations of the globe, during which he collected thousands of marine specimens, some of them first-time discoveries, for his museum.
The Lobster Fest will be a memorable event – featuring passed hors d’oeuvres, whole steamed lobsters, grilled skirt steak, and roasted sweet corn. As an added attraction – enjoy craft beer and sangria while witnessing the preparation of a 5-foot Paella. A deejay will play music for listening and dancing.
A 1908 Rolls Royce, 1911 Cadillac and 1920 Buick Roadster will be on display. Participants are invited to bring their nine irons and take part in a chip-shot contest on the remaining holes of Willie Vanderbilt’s original estate golf course. The player who gets closest to the pin wins the pot.
Tickets are $125 per person, $115 for Members (and $1,125 for a table of 10). Purchase tickets on-line at vanderbiltmuseum.org, or call 631-854-5579, Monday through Friday, 10:00-4:00 p.m. Reservations must be made by Friday, July 14.Purchase Tickets Become a Sponsor
