Sunset Soiree

Sunset Soiree - An Enchanged Epicurean Affair on the Northeast's Tallest peak

Life is short... Eat dessert first!

Sunset Soiree is our signature fall event, combining decadent food and wine with a twilight drive to the top of Mount Washington. Each year is different and the mountain never fails to impress.

Festivities begin with a private wine tasting in the historic Douglas A. Philbrook Red Barn Museum at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road. Next, board a motor coach and enjoy a chauffeured drive to the summit of Mount Washington, where a sumptuous selection of desserts awaits your indulgence. As twilight falls, head to the observation deck for a sunset champagne toast, then return to the base for an elegant dinner by the renowned Thompson House Eatery of Jackson, New Hampshire. The evening concludes with coffee, sweets, and an artfully curated silent auction featuring breathtaking photography and getaways.

Date:  The 2015 date soon to be announced
Time:  Approximately 4:45—9:15pm
Place: Auto Road Lodge
Cost:   $135 per person for Observatory members, $150 per person for non-members

All proceeds from this special fundraiser benefit the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, helping to support our work in weather observation, research and education on Mount Washington.

Sorry – the event has sold out for 2014. If you are interested in being put on a list for 2015 please contact Krissy Fraser at kfraser@mountwashington.org.

*In the event that inclement weather prevents us from reaching the summit, we will return to the base and enjoy the dessert tasting and dinner.
