Master Calendar

The Conservancy is thrilled to host our first gala as we emerge from the pandemic: Midsummer Night’s Dream! Join us for this exquisite summer party to raise funds for the Preserve. Dinner and dancing in the Rose Garden under a starry sky – definitely a dream to share!

We are celebrating the Sands Point Preserve’s magnificent natural environment: the gardens, lawns, forest, pond, and beachfront – the nurturing outdoor spaces that helped so many through the difficult times of the pandemic.

Drawing inspiration from Shakespeare’s marvelous play, we’re adding a dash of enchantment to the evening…  Beautifully airborne, Titania, Queen of the Fairies, will hold court during dinner, while Puck, Peaseblossom, and Mustardseed cause mischief across the grounds. Fairy children will deliver Shakespeare’s messages of love to your table!

Individual tickets are available as are Preserver gala packages, which support the Conservancy’s mission to enhance the Guggenheim Estate and provide year-round cultural, educational, and wellness programming. Preservers are invited for a VIP pre-party adventure at Puck’s Pub just inside the Forest.
