Bourbon & Boxwood

Bourbon and Boxwood 2021 has been postponed until May 14, 2022. Thank you for your understanding!


This was a decision not easily reached, but as museums contribute to the heart and soul of a community, we feel a responsibility for its health and wellbeing. With the Fredericksburg region classified as an area of high transmission, it became clear that the safest course of action was to shift our celebration to the spring.  


We have temporarily paused ticket sales, but have left the sponsorship link open for our sponsors’ use and for those who may wish to become sponsors of the spring event.

Washington Heritage Museums was formed in 2012 to preserve its four 18th century properties and share their histories through dynamic programming. In the first five years that WHM hosted Bourbon and Boxwood, over $320,000 in net proceeds were raised for our mission. This year a generous community had pledged a significant rise in sponsorship, to over $121,000. This was made possible through the generosity of renewed sponsors, new sponsors, and those who increased their level of support. Since its inception, the funds raised through Bourbon and Boxwood have supported critical preservation projects, allowed us to pivot our resources in the wake of COVID 19, and supported programming upon the reopening of the museums.


We are truly thankful for such a generous community.
