Event Details

Welcome to the Bixby Gala!

**ALERT 5/9/2013** We are now SOLD OUT for dinner.  Please consider joining us at 8:30pm for the Dessert Buffet and dancing to the Grift! Online ticket sales have ended but dessert buffet tickets are still available at the door, beginning at 8:15pm. Hope to see you there!

Google defines a "gala" as follows:

A social occasion with special entertainments or performances.

We couldn't agree more with this definition and hope that you can join us at this great event!  We’re excited about lots of changes to the Gala this year, including:

  • NEW!  Dinner this year will be a seated 3-course dinner followed by dessert buffet and...
  • NEW!  Dancing to THE GRIFT!  Check out their website at
  • NEW!  Reserve a table with your friends!  It's easy!  Just pretend that you're making a restaurant reservation for 8 or more and fill your table!  (individual tickets for dinner or dessert only are still available, see ticket types for details)
  • NEW!  Special room rates at Basin Harbor on Friday May 17 and Saturday May 18 for attendees of the Bixby Gala.  Rates start at $109 plus tax for standard guest rooms plus a full, hot breakfast the following day.  1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottages are also available at reduced rates.  Call (802) 475-2311 and mention the Bixby to make your reservations.  You’ll need to show your ticket receipt at the desk when checking in to your room to confirm this rate.  
  • NEW!  Sponsor’s Reception starting at 5pm for 2013 individual and business Bronze, Silver and Gold sponsors.  A special drawing will be held for Sponsors attending this hosted reception.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

There is no ID requirement or age limit to enter the Gala, however ID is required to consume or purchase alchoholic beverages or should you choose to go to the Red Mill at Basin Harbor after the Gala ends. 


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There will be plenty of parking at the Main Dining Room!  Consider staying at the harbor overnight at our special discounted prices by calling Basin Harbor directly at (802) 475-2311.  Be sure to mention the Bixby to obtain the discount!


What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring your dancing shoes, your dressy clothes (semi-formal/cocktail attire) and get ready to celebrate!  Please don't bring any pets or outside food or drink.  Children with a valid ticket to the event are welcome.


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Call the Bixby at (802) 877-2211 or email us with any questions that you have that aren't answered here. 


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

YES!  If, sadly, you cannot attend the event, you can give your ticket(s) to a friend. We cannot issue any refunds for tickets, so please pass them on if you're unable to use them!


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

YES!  Please bring your ticket, and be sure to show it at hotel registration if you'll be checking in at Basin Harbor for the night, since these special discounted room rates are only for Bixby Gala guests. 


The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

YES!  Only one attendee can use a ticket, but it's ok if the names don't match.  Table tickets will each have the name of the person purchasing the tickets.
