This coming Saturday the 6th is the fourth annual Frostbite Bash! Join the party and enjoy full open bars and food tastings from a variety of top local restaurants and vendors. Dance the night away in the historic Hall of Boats (A must see!), bid on items in the live and silent auctions, and snap photos with your friends in our photo booth. A night you’re sure not to forget!
Herreshoff Marine Museum uses this party as a major fundraiser for their great year-round programs. From adult and junior sailing and seamanship programs in their fleet of 12 1/2’s, to a lively winter lecture series and many fun and educational events at the museum – there is something for everyone.
The Herreshoff Marine Museum / America’s Cup Hall of Fame is dedicated to the education and inspiration of the public through presentations of the history and innovative work of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and the America’s Cup competition.
The Museum, bordering beautiful Narragansett Bay, in Bristol, Rhode Island, is one of the nation’s most important historic maritime treasures. We regularly host classic yacht regattas, sponsor symposia on classic yacht design and restoration, and operate an outstanding sailing school for youth and adults. We celebrate excellence in design, innovation, education, and technology.
Immerse yourself in exhibits about the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, the America’s Cup, and the fabulous people and yachts that gained fame around the world. Participate in our extraordinary events and expand your horizons. Visit, join, and be a part of a great tradition.
The Bash will also be your first opportunity to witness the unveiling of the RELIANCE Model, a 30 foot, museum quality model of the America’s Cup winner, RELIANCE.
