Celebrate the 1640 founding at Southampton’s oldest home, The Thomas Halsey Homestead (249 South Main Street), this year during the 375th Anniversary. Enjoy live music, plentiful hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, the 3rd NY Regiment in colonial costume, and a silent auction. This museum benefit is often quoted as “the most fun you will have all summer!” All are welcome to this fancy lawn party where people come dressed in festive clothing to toast one another from the open bar and then dine from groaning boards offering fresh made sushi, shrimp the size of lobsters and a variety of savory meats and smoked vegetables. Costumed re-enactors dressed as colonial militia give off periodic gun salutes while wenches dressed in 18th century gowns entertain guests with fortune telling and saucy jokes. Neckties and high heels are not encouraged. Tickets are $125 in advance/$150 at the door. Interested in purchasing our Junior Supporter Tickets ($75 for 30-21 years, $20 for 20 years & younger)? Please call 631-283-2494.
