Vintage & Vine, the fine wine and food festival and silent auction, is the main annual fundraiser for Strawbery Banke Museum. The event is championed by the Board of Trustees and takes place when the museum is at its finest, burnished to perfection by the season and the thousands of visitors who’ve put Strawbery Banke at the top of the TripAdvisor list of ‘things to do.’
For more information about participating in the event, please contact Robyn Aldo, Vintage & Vine Event Chair and Strawbery Banke trustee, at vintageandvine [at] sbmuseum.org or 781.248.4351. For volunteer information and sign-up, click here.

Presenting innovative bites from grills at “center-stage” while dozens of the seacoast’s best chefs present their best “grazing” specialties. The wine raffle and silent auction of items ranging from trips to ‘behind the scene’ tours to shows and home décor, add to the excitement of the evening – and the funds raised for Strawbery Banke educational programs and preservation efforts. Cuppa Joe provides the musical accompaniment of jazz and blues under the September sky.
Take full advantage of the experience:
- Stroll the historic neighborhood when the gardens are at high-summer peak
- Sample and order wonderful wines
- Savor the culinary delights of the star chefs and restaurant partners
- Shop products & services showcased by day-of raffle and silent auction donors
- Explore and shop the online Vintage & Vine auction
The Silent Auction and Raffle, on the night of the event, features selections ranging from vacations and sporting events to fine art. The Vintage & Vine Raffle offers the chance to win a tower of fine wines, a paddleboard package and a bouquet of lottery tickets.
The Online Silent Auction features items from these generous organizations who have donated gift cards, home goods, great escapes, beauty products, health and fitness packages and so much more to the Vintage & Vine online silent auction!
