the gala

friday, may 17 • 7p – 11p

The Gala is officially sold out!  

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

One special night every spring, the adults get to take over the Museum for an indulgent night of everybiteimagineable.

The Gala, our largest annual fundraiser, brings some of the Triad’s best food and beverage makers to the Museum floor. More than 20 chefs, brewers, and distillers will be featured throughout our exhibits. Experience sliders by our Airplane Slide, local beers in our Big Red Chair, and craft cocktails in hand as you wander our Edible Schoolyard garden. This year, Greensboro Children’s Museum is turning 20! Of course, we will be celebrating all year, but the Gala will really be our big birthday bash!

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

We are thankful for your support, and we hope you will join us on May 17!

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.
