Abbe Museum Gathering Gala

The Abbe's Gathering Gala has become a summer tradition on Mount Desert Island. Every July, we celebrate the Abbe and our work with an evening of food, drink, friendship, and philanthropy, and you are invited to join us! 

This festive evening at the Bar Harbor Club begins with a silent auction, cocktails, and passed hors d'oeuvres, followed by a sit-down dinner, live auction, and entertainment. The silent and live auctions feature original works from local and Native artists, as well as a variety of other items and one-of-a-kind experiences. Our auctioneer this year will be College of the Atlantic President, Darron Collins! Visit our website for a preview of the auction items.

If you would like to make a reservation, please email this card to, mail it to Abbe Museum at PO Box 286 Mount Desert St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609, or call 
207-288-3519. We can't wait to celebrate with you in a few weeks!
