Annual Founder’s Clambake

September 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

It’s that time of year again! Savor local Indigenous foods of lobster, clams, corn, and potatoes while enjoying drumming & dancing by the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers! As we honor our past 45 years with social distancing on our minds, we will limit onsite dinner guests and ALSO offer takeout to guests who want to enjoy an at-home clambake.

This year, our annual Clambake proceeds will go to our museum’s education department, so we can support schools’ Indigenous curriculum through our newly developed remote learning program.

Don’t miss this celebration of Music, Dance, and traditional Northeastern food!

Reservations required. 

$50 Adults; $40 Members; $10 children 12 and under (hot dogs, chips, and lemonade)
