Join us for our inaugural Founder's Day event to benefit the Roycroft Campus!

Saturday, June 4, 2022, 5:30-7:30pm followed by an outdoor movie after dark

Thank you to everyone who attended Founder’s Day!  We look forward to bringing this event back in 2023!

Attn: Attendees – We have two unclaimed basket raffle prizes.  If you have the ticket stubs for #s 1633205 or 1633211, please call or visit the Visitor Center Tuesday – Saturday 11am-4pm.

Similar to gatherings held on the Campus during its heyday in the early 1900s, Founder’s Day will be an outdoor, family-friendly event with live music by The Brothers Blue, crafts, games, a basket raffle, and delicious barbeque food.  After some good old-fashioned fun at Founder’s Day, join us after dark for an outdoor movie as we go “Back to the Future” (1985)!

Tickets include food, non-alcoholic drinks, and access to all activities. Basket raffle tickets must be purchased separately the day of the event. Beer and wine will be available to purchase for those 21 and older.

Adult Tickets: $25

Child Tickets Under 14: $15

Children Under 3: FREE

Proceeds will provide much-needed funding required to continue the restoration and preservation of this National Historic Landmark.
