Sommersonnenwende is German for summer solstice, and we’ll gather on the longest day of the year for fellowship and a celebration of Aurora’s heritage. There will be “winebibbing” with German-style wines from Christopher Bridge Winery in Canby, plus beer, beverages, and tasty nibbles in the courtyard. Executive Director Patrick Harris will give a history talk and an update on our soon-to-be-built Preservation & Research Center, and there may even be a short walking tour of Aurora for those who wish to venture out.

Old Aurora Colony Quilters

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Old Aurora Colony Museum

The Old Aurora Colony Quilters gather ‘round the quilting frame at the museum on Tuesday mornings to hand quilt a project and enjoy each other’s company. Their hold a Block Contest each year in conjunction with the Old Aurora Colony Museum Quilt Show, and then hand quilt the winning results to raffle for the museum’s benefit. They know a lot about quilts and are great allies in preserving the 200+ historic quilts in the museum collection.

Want to learn to quilt, or use your quilting skills for a good cause? Join the fun on Tuesday mornings!
