Founder's Day Feast
Thursday from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST
Join us for our Annual Founder's Day Feast on Thursday March 3rd at 6pm. Each year we recognize the official formation of the Town of Newbern which occurred with approval by the General Assembly on March 3, 1810. Newbern was named for the early Swiss and German settlers to the region and we celebrate that through food and drink. The Founders Day Feast will be limited to 20 guests and served in the 1818 barn on site at the museum. A catered Swiss inspired meal will include, select Swiss wines, Braided Zopf Bread, Bunder Gerstensuppe (barley soup), Pork Cordon Bleu Schnitzel, Oepfelbroeisi (fried apples and raisins), Rosti (alpine cheese and potatoes), and Hazelnut Vermicellas (chocolate pasta, cream, and fresh berries). Locally sourced ingredients from area farms will be included. $55 per person with all proceeds benefitting the museum.
