Rum Runner Cruise

It’s Saturday, September 23, 1927! Board the S.S. MUCKENTHALER when, during the 1920s and 30s, thirsty Americans would travel on these “booze cruise ships” past the three mile limit of America’s shores to escape the confines of Prohibition.

Join costumed passengers and crew of the S.S. MUCKENTHALER, enOrange County Events on September 23, 2017joy a delicious dinner on deck, “cut a rug” on the dance floor as Dutch Newman and the Musical Melodians play music of the 20s and 30s, and try your luck at activities to raise funds for the Muckenthaler’s Educational Programming. Explore the ship and meet her crew and notable passengers as we transform the Muckenthaler into a 1920s Rum Runner cruise ship… and no need to worry about getting seasick! Bon Voyage!

This event starts at 6:00 p.m. and is held outdoors on our lawns. Formal table seating. 1920s attire encouraged!

The Muckenthaler home was built by Walter and Adella Muckenthaler in 1924 atop a hill in Fullerton. The 18-room, 8.5-acres mansion was donated to the city in 1965 by Harold Muckenthaler, who wished to see his childhood home used as a cultural center for the public. Today, the Muck produces more than 60 performances, gallery exhibits, festivals and special events; and more than 3,500 hours of arts education classes at the Muck and in 25 outreach sites serving more than 41,000 people every year.
