Each year, Living History Farms invites guests to dinner at one of the museum’s many historic homes. Much more than a meal, you’ll step back in time to get a glimpse of life in the past and a taste of history at a Historic Dinner program! Tickets for 2021-22 fall, winter, and spring programs will be available for purchase starting August 5 for members and August 12 for non-members.

In the 1880s, “13” clubs became a popular theme supper party; 13 people met for dinner on the 13th day of the month to eat 13 dishes and poke fun at every superstition possible. Meet at the Flynn Mansion, for a fall feast and a superstition-filled evening!
November 2021 – February 2022
