The Abbe’s Gathering Gala has become a summer tradition on Mount Desert Island. Every July, we celebrate the Abbe and our work with an evening of food, drink, friendship, and philanthropy, and you’re invited to join us!

This festive evening begins with cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres, followed by entertainment, a sit-down dinner, and live auction. The live auction features original works from Native artists, as well as one-of-a-kind experiences.


Ticket levels and prices will be released soon. Invitations will be mailed in June, but if you would like to make an early reservation, please call
