Don’t miss this fun summer evening celebration to benefit the Dallin Museum! This year’s Summer Soiree theme “An Evening in Paris” will celebrate the city that launched Cyrus Dallin’s career as an internationally acclaimed sculptor.

Experience the tastes, sights, and sounds of turn-of-the-century Paris. Savor gourmet French-inspired hors d’oeuvres by Essex Catering and a delicious assortment of French pastries from Paul Bakery. The cash bar will feature signature French cocktails, wine, and beer. Local musicians Ririka Tokushige (reeds), Somer O’Brien (accordion), and Julie Perron (guitar and vocals) will perform a repertoire of iconic French standards they developed exclusively for the Soiree, and artists from Boston Caricature will be on hand to sketch portraits of guests. Last but not least, longtime Arlington Selectman Kevin Greeley will emcee our exciting silent auction. Purchase your tickets today!
