Tavern Night at Fairfield Museum’s Sun Tavern

The public is invited to the newly restored Sun Tavern (c. 1780) for a night of colonial entertainment and revelry on Saturday, July 8, from 6-8 p.m. Much like in the 1700s, members of the Fairfield community and surrounding areas will gather to meet, gossip, sip beer and dance.

Guests will learn about and taste local brews from Aspetuck Brew Lab of Fairfield and discover more about local Connecticut hops and ingredients used in Colonial times. In addition, the night will feature traditional music and dancing outside the tavern, past-times that were highlights of social activity in the 1700s.

Performers including Patricia Campbell and music from The Reel Thing will be in period dress and will guide guests through easy dances that are fun for everyone. Lawn-friendly shoes are recommended. Refreshments will be served.

Sun Tavern is located on the new Museum Commons behind the Fairfield Museum.

Advance registration for Tavern Night is recommended.

Members: $20; Nonmembers: $25.
