Sunset Soiree

Life is short... Eat dessert first!

Sunset Soiree is our premier 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: Saturday, September 12, 2015
Time: Approximately 4:45—9:15pm
Place: Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center
Cost: $140 per person for Observatory members, $160 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.

Tickets sales to be announced July 2015

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.
