The Preakness Gala
May 15 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
After the elation and success of The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art Derby Day Gala last year, the 2021 date and theme are based on the Preakness race on May 15th. The Preakness Gala promises to be a grand, sophisticated, and entertaining evening scheduled from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at the Winsome Estate & Stables located at 391 Tel Power Road, Hollidaysburg, PA 16648.
Once again, our Gala committee and SAMA staff have planned a fabulous evening to include outdoor vistas as well as indoor fun. We encourage our guests to wear Preakness themed attire while enjoying delicious cuisine, beverages, live and silent auctions, demonstrating artists, casino, and live music by the band Kono Nation. The Preakness race will be shown live on the big screen at 6:50 p.m.; the Casino will be open all evening and players can use their winnings to buy beautiful, bountiful gift baskets, and al fresco tables and seating for strolling the outdoor patio are available. The auctions will feature equestrian art and sculpture, unique garden features, dream vacations, excursions and overnight stays such as a Fallingwater private tour and nearby cabin retreat, and more. The event is sponsored by Benzel’s Bretzel Bakery. Be advised all CDC health and COVID-19 social distancing guidelines will be in place at SAMA events.
