    With a new merger, partnership consortium,  and less nostalgia, the Germantown Historical Society is facing forward and welcoming the future of bright ideas and innovative programming.  “Germantown’s best days are ahead of it and not behind it” is how Barbara Hogue of the Germantown Historical Society expressed the marking of this event. It’s the start of a gastronomic experience that weaves the richness of the old with the deliciousness of the new.


    Come out and celebrate the historic treasures of Germantown while sipping cocktails and savoring delectable foods from some of the neighborhood’s best chefs.  You will see and enjoy samples from:


    Germantown Cricket Club

    Linda’s Flower Cafe

    Nile Cafe

    Susan McLellan Plaisted, 17th & 18th century

    Earth’s Elements Foods & Products
