Join supporters of The House of the Seven Gables to support their mission to be a welcoming, thriving historic site and community resource that engages people of all backgrounds in their inclusive American story. A Taste of the Gables takes place Sunday, September 15, 2019, from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m. under a tent in the beautiful Gables gardens by the sea.
The evening will begin with a tasting of food from local vendors: savory morsels, sweet treats, and local spirits and craft beers for revelers to sample. A strolling magician and Latin musician will help to make the evening special. There will be a Silent Auction followed by a Live Auction offering many items to tempt bidders including original art, gift certificates and fabulous experiences. After the live auction, coffee and dessert will be served to top off the evening.
I have donated an original screen print of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Sophia Peabody, Salem Sweethearts. This very limited edition artist’s pull is a portrait of the famous Salem husband and wife done in black ink on white rag paper.
In a continued effort to be a more sustainable event, Taste of The Gables will be using compostable serveware when possible and community volunteers will be helping event attendees with this initiative.
