5th Annual Spirits and History
September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$50
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. We hope to reschedule in June, and will notify you with firmer plans for a date as soon as possible.
Are you a history buff who loves food and libations? If so, join us for our 5th Annual Spirits and History event.
You’ll be treated to a guided churchyard tour where you will hear stories about several influential Swedish men and women who are buried here. The Swedes’ came to what is now Philadelphia to seek commerce with the Lenape long before William Penn arrived.
Inside Riverside Hall, sample spirits from local distilleries, hors d’oeuvres from local chefs and enter a wine auction to help raise funds to restore the property.
Plus, enjoy live jazz music courtesy of the Jazz Sanctuary.
And the best part: proceeds from the event will help us preserve and restore the Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church property.
