Let us engage you and your guests in an evening of sensory delights. Upon arrival, you will be treated to valet parking and a perfectly chilled glass of sparkling wine. As you meander down the tree-lit path immersed in the fresh scent of pine, you will be tempted with an assortment of savoury delicacies and Ontario award-winning wines until you finally arrive at our spectacular open-air stone terrace—host to our beautiful moon-lit soiree.

Message from Chair

The 2019 Moonlight Gala was a resounding success! Thank you for supporting the art of Canada at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. 

We couldn’t have done it without every guest, donor, and sponsor that attended and made the party brim with energy and fun. We are truly grateful.

We want to acknowledge the tireless work of so many who brought the amazing Moonlight Gala experience to fruition! Thank you to the Moonlight Gala 2019 Committee members, the McMichael Foundation Board of Directors, the Board of Trustees, and the staff at the McMichael who savour the opportunity of hosting this spectacular event. Special thanks go out to our many generous sponsors and donors. We would also like to acknowledge the superior event management of Chad Brincheski and his team from ESP Inc. and the creative genius of Eric Aragon for the stunning décor.

We look forward to seeing you again next June to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Group of Seven. In the meantime, we hope that you will continue to visit us again in this special place.

Save the date! June 6, 2020.
