Matt Edwards, executive director of the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History, said this is the first of the museum’s smaller “fun”-raising events for the year.
“We wanted to create some smaller scale, lower-price events to try and get a more diverse audience involved with the museum. We are partnering with the Old North State Winery and I think that makes this event really interesting,” said Edwards. “I think it’s going to be a good event for us.”
This is the third event held jointly with the winery and the museum. A Boo Bash held at Halloween last year was well attended. The New Year’s Eve party was a sell out.
“Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. We are expecting a good turn-out for this event,” said Edwards.
Music will be provided by Evan Olsen & Dana. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. The event is sponsored by B & L Custom Jewelers and Old North State Winery. Ticket proceeds will benefit the museum. There will be wine, green beer and food sales during the event.
