Summary of Annual Events

Patriots’ Day

Make the Concord Museum part of your Patriots’ Day tradition! Each April, Concord is the focal point for visitors from near and far as area minutemen reenact the fateful events of April 19, 1775 and fife and drum corps from all over the nation march down Main Street. After the Patriots’ Day parade, or anytime throughout the Patriots’ Day weekend, visit the Concord Museum’s six history galleries and experience a hands-on orientation to Concord’s remarkable past.

Garden Tour

Concord Museum’s Annual Garden Tour is a benefit organized by the Concord Museum Guild of Volunteers and features outstanding private gardens in the Concord area.

Golf Tournament

This annual, premier golf tournament supports the Museum’s educational initiatives. The 25th Annual Tournament, organized by the Concord Museum Guild of Volunteers, will be held on August 10, 2020 at the Concord Country Club.

 

Sally Lanagan Lecture

The Lanagan Lecture is a major annual lecture named for Sally Lanagan, a beloved volunteer who was deeply involved with the Museum and had a passion for American art, the decorative arts, and historic preservation. To honor Sally and her memory each year, The Sally Lanagan Fund was established in 2012 by her family, as a tribute to Sally’s years of dedicated service to the Concord Museum. Through this endowed lectureship, the Museum offers each year a presentation by a prominent scholar on a topic that is aligned with her interests.

Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature

Concord’s renowned literary tradition takes a creative twist during the holiday season when the Concord Museum opens the annual Family Trees: A Celebration of Childrens Literature. A benefit exhibition with related programs, Family Trees fills the Museum with trees and wreaths of all shapes and sizes fancifully dressed for the occasion with charming original ornaments inspired by a dazzling selection of children’s picture books. Family Trees is organized by the Concord Museum Guild of Volunteers and this year will be held from November 25, 2020 through January 3, 2021.

The Fête

Join friends of the Museum for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at our annual event celebrating the opening of Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature. Each year the Concord Museum Guild of Volunteers host a beautiful night of holiday cheer!

Guests are welcomed inside the front doors of gracious private Concord residences to visit the charming ground floor rooms. From Colonial to Victorian to Shingle Style and more, each house will be decorated in a different holiday theme.
