THIS EVENT, FORMERLY SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 6, WILL BE POSTPONED DUE TO HURRICANE FLORENCE. ONCE THE STORM HAS PASSED AND WE ALL HAVE A CHANCE TO ASSESS OUR SITUATIONS, WE WILL TRY TO RESCHEDULE. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR MEMBERSHIP. WE WISH SAFETY FOR EVERYONE IN THE HURRICANE'S PATH.
You are invited
Fort Fisher is more than the place where you remember and give voice to the sacrifices of those who trained, triumphed and fell during the Civil War and WWII. It's also one of the most beautiful places to enjoy an evening. We'd like to thank you for supporting Fort Fisher State Historic Site with a special
Evening at the Fort.
All members and those who would like to become members are welcome!
Admission to the Evening is just
$20 for each Member* & $60 for each non-Member
which will include a Palisades, individual membership
If you would prefer a couple's membership or would like to support at a greater level, we would love to accommodate you! You can join the Mounds, Blockade Runner, Gibraltar, or Col. Charles E. Fisher Society and still purchase your party admission for just an additional $20 per person. Some membership levels include complimentary tickets to this event, but reservations are still required.
Please call us, and we'll explain and handle it all for you personally, over the phone. We can be reached at 910.251.7340 Tues-Sat 9am -5pm or after hours at 910.233.2013.
*Current and new Palisades members can purchase one (1) admission at the $20 members' price. Additional admissions would require an additional membership purchase. Members of the Mounds Society and higher may purchase two (2) $20 membership admissions, as these membership levels provide benefits for two adults.
