Event description

Description

The Eastman Museum & Rochester Cocktail Revival present "Masquerade in the Mansion," our annual cocktail party held at the historic - and perhaps, haunted - home of George Eastman. Wear your finest black tie or evening attire, don an elaborate mask, and enter through the porte cochere just like guests did in Eastman’s time to enjoy hors d'oeuvres and Halloween-inspired cocktails concocted by the RCR team with Santa Teresa 1796 Rum and Heaven Hill Distillery. Upstairs, revelers can see a unique exhibit of spirit photographs from the museum’s photography collection, create their own digital spirit photograph or sun print, and enjoy other spooky activities. The evening's live, eerie soundtrack will be provided by organist Tim Schramm on the Aeolian Pipe Organ and Rochester-based jazz quartet Bearcat and the Birds.

Limited VIP tickets are available for a Rumors & Ghosts tour of the third floor, attic, and basement of the mansion (areas that are not usually accessible to the public). NOTE: tour begins at 6:45 p.m.

6:30 – 7:30 p.m. – VIP Rumors & Ghosts Tour
7:30 – 9:30 p.m. – General Admission




Want a full day of spooky fun? Eight people can sign up for a special one-day spirit photography boot camp that includes the opportunity to make your own ghost images with the help of our experienced team. No photographic experience is required to attend, and you’ll leave with a 5×7″ tintype portrait made by an experienced tintypist from the George Eastman Museum and an information packet on how that plate was made. Boot camp participants receive a VIP pass to the masquerade, which includes the Rumors & Ghosts tour and a third drink. **No refunds will be given for cancellations for this workshop.
