The Lincoln County Historical Society’s Holiday Gathering is a fun and casual mixer complete with rare vintage instruments, played by Brent Bunker. It will be held on Saturday, December 1st from 1:00-4:00 pm.
Festivities will take place around the glowing warmth of the fireplace in the Maritime Center’s Great Room and will include festive refreshments and a special holiday musical program by Brent Bunker. Brent will be sharing his extensive collection of old and unusual musical instruments and playing them too! For anyone who has never seen a Ukalin, Harp O Lyre, Tremoloa, or a Marxophone, google it or better yet, take this opportunity to check out, up close and personal, these rare vintage instruments.
Attendees to this long-standing community tradition can also check out the museum’s exhibits, the great progress being made on the Doerfler Family Theater project and enjoy the unmatched views of Newport’s Historic Bayfront.
Be sure to bring your Christmas shopping list as the gift shop will be offering a Special Holiday Discount only available during this event. The Maritime Museum gift shop has an outstanding selection of maritime and history publications, as well as locally produced items.
Admission to the Holiday Gathering is free for members and kids under 12, and $5.00 for non-members. The Pacific Maritime Heritage Center is located at 333 SE Bay Blvd on Newport’s Historic Bayfront. Parking is available at the top of the hill.
