Please join us for the 10th Annual Old Sturbridge Village Gala. The Village's largest fundraising event of the year, the Gala includes fabulous cocktail and elegant stations, live and silent auctions.
The images accompanying the founding of the United States--of honored Founders, dramatic battle scenes, and seminal moments--gave visual shape to Revolutionary events and symbolized an entirely new concept of leadership and government. Since then they have endured as indispensable icons, serving as historical documents and timeless reminders of the nation's unprecedented beginnings.
Come explore the Village on a quiet Spring day where photo opportunities abound! While we are closed to the general public, join one of our staff photographers as she guides you through the Village, both inside and out. Learn how to frame shots, explore working with light and shadows, and walk away with some great photographs!
Calling all Scouts! Join us for a unique camping experience in the countryside of Old Sturbridge Village!

The evening will be topped off with stories by a roaring bonfire. Not a scout? No problem: all families are welcome!
