Special Events at aMuse’um are one of the greatest ways for us to raise funding and get to know families in the community. Our events are a fun and interactive way for families to spend quality time together. From our annual Daddy Daughter Dance to the Ice Cream Crankin’ each summer, our special events provide families with opportunities for rich engagement and togetherness. Our largest fundraising event, the annual Food Truck Festival, provides fellowship, live music, and great food for the adults in the area. These special events are just one of the many ways you can support aMuse’um and our mission.
