October First Friday Social 


Members of the Custom House Maritime Museum and their guests are cordially invited to our First Friday Social on October 4th from 6:00-8:00 pm for an outstanding experience in celebration of our maritime heritage.

Each and every First Friday of the month, the museum showcases historical maritime artifacts or events in celebration of Newburyport's rich and intriguing history.  We encourage all our members to invite a guest and introduce them to the Custom House Maritime Museum for a casual evening of conversation, company and maritime discovery in the heart of downtown Newburyport.

For your refreshment, wine, beer and soft drinks will be served – along with thematic hors d’oeuvres from Sheila Mullins' extraordinary Spice Trade Culinary Adventure -- each month featuring the cuisine of a different exotic port!
