About Our Event
Every year, the Plantation welcomes around 12,000 visitors, 8,000 of whom are school students and summer campers. Many of those visiting students are from low-income or economically disadvantaged areas of Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, and in recent years we've worked with the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Foundation and the Longwood Foundation to provide these children the opportunity to take part in our programs at free or reduced rate.
As our supporters may or may not know, although we operate under a long-term lease agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, we do not receive operating funds from the State of Pennsylvania. Our single largest general operating fundraiser is our Fall Fundraiser--and we hope you'll join us!
Our event features fine catering provided by Kings Mills, including hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, wine and beer. This year, our event will also feature two signature cocktails--you can taste a historic recipe and learn the backstory behind how it developed. Ever heard of a "Rattle-skull?" Well, you can find out about that drink and others while enjoying the sound of our strolling colonial musicians.
Guests can also peruse dozens of silent auction items, including weekend getaways, items for sports collectors and historic handcraft enthusiasts, wine and craft beer baskets, and more. Ever wanted to learn to spin wool and flax? Well, here's your chance--one of our silent auction items is package including a Louet spinning wheel, hand cards, and a spinning lesson provided by Plantation experts.
Our Live Auction will feature one-of-a-kind and breathtaking items that we have painstakingly hand-picked for our guests.
Tickets are $70.00 for members, and $75.00 for non-members, and include all of the amenities we've listed above, plus the knowledge that your attendance will help to support our programming in 2018. You are welcome to come in costume, but you'll have just as good a time in your cocktail attire!
Our online auction through Bidding for Good returns for another year! You can peruse additional rare and collectable items at our Bidding for Good website by clicking HERE.
