We’re Gonna Party Like Its 1818!

We’re Gonna Party Like It’s 1818!

Who were the people who founded our State of Illinois 200 years ago? What did they dream about? What did they eat? How did they dress? And, most importantly how did they celebrate becoming the 21st state in the United States of America?

Join Ellie while she takes you to a party in 1818. Sample the food, have your silhouette made, dance the dances and hear the music that might have played as all 32,000 of us celebrated statehood.

Running Time: Approximately 1 hour

Requirements: Ability to play music from a computer with speakers, small area that can be made very dark for creating silhouettes, section of floor that can be danced upon,  table for food tasting.

This is an interactive program. Audience members should expect to participate and mingle with other guests as they would at any party. Costumes are encouraged but not required. Ellie is happy to give costume assistance if asked.

Cost: $300, includes small food tasting


This program is also available with a full meal authentic to the residents of Illinois in 1818. Please contact Ellie to discuss menus and pricing.
