Event Description

For one night Brucemore’s infamous Tahitian Room will spill out into the pool area for the estate’s seventh annual Tahitian Party on June 26 from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m. Throw on a hula skirt or Hawaiian shirt and dance to the beat of the steel drum band to help preserve Brucemore as a community resource. With Polynesian noshes, exotic beverages, and roast suckling pig, this popular event cannot be missed.


Brucemore’s role as an irreplaceable community hub reflects the organization’s mission—to engage the public in the history, traditions, resources, and on-going preservation for the enrichment of the community. Throughout the year, staff and Trustees work to preserve the buildings and grounds of this historic twenty-six acre estate to ensure that the gardens, grounds, and 21 mansion continue to be enjoyed by the community. Some of the upcoming projects include tuckpointing the east side of the mansion, repairing rotten wood in the window frames and sills, and restoring the pool area landscape design of the Douglas family, who lived in the house from 1906 to 1937. Preservation endeavors like these help to ensure that Brucemore remains a quality cultural destination and community landmark.
