Event Details

Sugars, sweets and candy played a large part in the lives of rural families for centuries. At the turn-of-century, these foods started to shift, as industrialization saturated the eating habits of people everywhere. In this talk and tasting, you'll discover the medicines of the mid-to-late 1800s and their new lives as candy in the 1920s; explore the role of Prohibition in sweets - for better or worse (usually better); the sugars of rural communities and its surprising legacy in the abolitionist movement, and much more. You'll get a bag of candies that you'll sample as we go."

Tickets are $20, which includes the presentation, candy tastings, and a donation to the museum. Doors will close promptly at starting time to not interrupt the program.  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes ahead of your seating.

*The program requires attention for an hour and proper table manners and thus are not suitable for children under the age of 8 years.  Your PayPal confirmation is your receipt and places you on our seating list.

The studio does offer a restroom with more at our office building.  Please let us know if you need special accommodations for accessibility or the seating of larger groups. Cancellations must be made 2 weeks before the program for a refund unless we are able to sell your seats to someone on the waiting list. Thank you for your understanding.*
