Historic Cold Spring Village kicks off the 2018 season with its signature fundraiser, Feasting on History. The annual restaurant gala is one of the most anticipated social events of the season, offering patrons an opportunity to network with businesses and the community before the summer season begins. Feasting on History is now in its 18th year and will be an amazing event. The event will be held at the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum at the Cape May Airport on Tuesday, May 1 at 6 p.m. Cape May County’s favorite restaurants, wineries, distilleries and breweries generously donate popular food, signature dishes, wine, craft beers and desserts. Last year, over 600 guests enjoyed a night of food, music and networking while celebrating the mission of Historic Cold Spring Village. The presenting sponsor of Feasting on History is Sturdy Savings Bank.
Feasting on History not only supports the Village and its mission of historic preservation, history education and heritage tourism, but it also offers guests the opportunity to celebrate their favorite restaurants and dining experiences in the company of friends and colleagues. Guests have an opportunity to find new and rediscover veteran dining locations as they taste favorite dishes, desserts and drinks throughout Cape May County. Proceeds from the 18th Annual Restaurant Gala are being dedicated to HCSV Foundation.
Tickets to Feasting on History are $85 per person, or $800 for a table of ten with advanced sale only. Seating will only be reserved for groups of 10 guests. For all other guests there will be open seating. For tickets or sponsorship information, please contact Sandy Nickel at (609) 898-2300 ext. 11 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Historic Cold Spring Village is a nonprofit, 1800s, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American era. Its mission includes the preservation of 27 historic Cape May County buildings, history education and promoting heritage tourism. The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, historically clothed interpreters and artisans preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” From October to May, the emphasis is on teaching history through school trips to the Village, classroom visits by the education department and interactive teleconferences with schools throughout the United States. The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern end of the Garden State Parkway.
