Purchase Tickets

Let us transport you back in time to Paris, 1888!

The Belle Epoque was in full swing and the Eiffel Tower was being built – the exact moment when the Pope family first visited and started their amazing art collection. Be a part of the origins of Hill-Stead at our signature event that kicks off our Annual Gala celebration.

The “Star of the Bar” event showcases talented local bartenders battling to create Hill-Stead’s Featured Gala Cocktail. Guests will sip, sample, vote for their favorite, and ultimately choose the evening’s winner.

Dress in your Parisian Belle Epoque Finest for a chance to win a prize for Best Costume!

Must be 21 and older.
