The Michael C. Carlos Museum is legendary for its signature galas and benefit parties. Veneralia, the "festival of Venus" as it was known in ancient times, is the Museum's signature spring annual gala. Each fall the Museum hosts Bacchanal, a riotous cocktail party in homage to ancient festivals of Bacchus, god of wine. Supporting these memorable events helps bring world-class exhibitions and programming to all our audiences.
