Annual Gala

  • Historic Cokesbury 18434 Hermitage Road Onancock, VA 23417 United States (map)

Don’t miss a lovely summer evening creekside with dinner and dancing! The Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society will host its annual Gala, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June. 8. We are delighted to share that the location this year will be Onancock’s Historic Cokesbury, at 18434 Hermitage Road. Resting on nearly 3 acres, the property boasts a backyard and dock that promise an unforgettable sunset on Onancock Creek. Tidewater Drive, a nine-piece show band with a formal horn section, will play the night away. Tickets are $130 each, and the historical society welcomes not only its generous members but not-yet-members to the fun! Come see just a small piece of what we have to offer while supporting a nonprofit to boot.

Sponsors are invited to a Champagne reception and private tour of the home at 5:30 p.m.
