Benefit and Member Events

BENEFIT EVENTS

The Michael C. Carlos Museum is legendary for its signature gala and benefit parties. Veneralia, the "festival of Venus" as it was known in ancient times, is the Museum's annual spring gala. In the past, each fall was marked by Bacchanal, a riotous cocktail party in homage to ancient festivals of Bacchus, god of wine. As of 2016, Mummies & Mixers has become the Museum's newest, liveliest fall party in its place.
Supporting these memorable events helps bring world-class exhibitions and programming to all of our audiences.
