Every summer, Oaklands hosts a Summer Party to raise funds for the various programs that happen at Oaklands throughout the year.
Mark your calendars for Oakland’s July Jamboree Summer Picnic on the grounds featuring The Knott Brothers Band, all-you-can-eat fried catfish and chicken and spirits by Prichard’s Distillery.
The summer picnic-style party will be held Friday, July 14, 2017, at 6:30 PM on the front lawn of Oaklands Mansion, 900 N. Maney Ave.
“The July Jamboree is a fun, casual night out that provides a very different way to support Education and Historic Preservation in downtown Murfreesboro,” said James Manning, Executive Director for the historic site that was once home to one of Murfreesboro’s first families. “This is one of only two major ‘fun-raising’ events held annually that sustain this nationally-registered historic site.”
While Nashville’s The Knott Brothers Band performs favorites on the front porch, guests can expect to be treated to Southern-fried chicken and catfish, cooked on site by Uncle Bud’s and served with all the “fixins”. To wet your whistle, there will be both an open bar as well as Prichard’s Distillery, who will be personally serving Rum tastings to guests.
Tickets will go on sale soon for $75 per person. For more information or sponsorship opportunities, call Oaklands at 615-893-0022 or visit OaklandsMansion.org.
