At the Greensboro Children’s Museum we try daily to provide our small guests with everythingimaginable.

But one warm Friday night in the spring the adults get to take over the Museum for an indulgent night of everybiteimagineable.

The Gala, our annual gastronomes fundraiser, brings some of the Triad’s best food and beverage makers to the Museum floor. Featuring more than 25 chefs, brewers, and distillers, tastes and sips can be had throughout our exhibits: pork sliders by our Airplane Slide, local beers in our Big Rig, and craft cocktails in hand as you wander our Edible Schoolyard garden. This year GCM turns 20! We’ll be celebrating all year, but The Gala will really be our big birthday bash!

Proceeds from The Gala go directly to supporting the Greensboro Children’s Museum everyday activities, educational field trips, and community programming.

We are so proud and thankful to call those of you who will join us friends and are excited to see you at the party.

The 2018 Gala was a huge success.  Our generous partners for the 2018 gala helped us raise over $160,000 – ensuring continuous captivation of children’s curiosities. Gala proceeds directly support incredible field trips for surrounding schools, engaging year-round classes for learners-of-all-ages, and downtown Greensboro’s most awesome indoor & outdoor play experience.
