“COCKTAILS AT THE CASTLE”: The Mercer Museum’s annual fall fundraiser returns to Doylestown, Pa., on the evening of Saturday, October 15. The event supports the museum’s education programs, exhibitions, and community initiatives.

The Mercer Museum’s annual fall fundraiser, Cocktails at the Castle, returns to Doylestown, Pa., on Saturday, October 15 from 6 to 10 p.m. for a night in support of the Mercer Museum’s education programs, exhibitions, and community initiatives.

Guests will enjoy an evening on the grounds of the Mercer Museum with specialties from Bucks County culinary purveyors, along with craft cocktail creations and entertainment.

The evening begins with a “Pine Street Stroll” cocktail hour, where guests can enjoy an elaborate selection of appetizers from Jeffrey A. Miller Catering and the musical sounds of Birdhouse Center, featuring Bronwyn Bird and Justin Nawn on guitar and nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish instrument.

After the cocktail hour, local restaurant and catering partners will serve their specialties to the attendees. Guests will enjoy sampling a curated list of craft cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the evening. Musical acts include Philadelphia-based party band Where’s Pete.

Bucks County Historical Society Chief Executive Officer Kyle McKoy said, “We are thrilled to welcome our community supporters and friends to another wonderful Cocktails at the Castle event this year. With so many regional favorites returning to share their culinary creations, as well as exciting new additions to the roster, all in an exceptional historic setting, we know it will be a year to remember.”
