Love Around the World at The Grace

  • The Grace Museum 102 Cypress Street Abilene, TX, 79601 United States (map)

Join us for a unique evening of travel and surprises at Love Around the World at The Grace on February 15 at 7 pm. Whether a fun night out with your friends or a special Valentine’s date with your sweetheart, this is an event that you don’t want to miss!


Enjoy a progressive evening as you "globe hop" around the museum and visit four distinct regions of the world: Brazil, China, Scotland, and California’s Napa Valley. Experience the culture of every region as you soak up the ambiance and enjoy delicious “bites” creatively prepared by Vagabond Pizza (heavy hors d’oeuvres) and carefully paired “sips” at each location. Grab a drink at the open bar and lounge in your favorite spots! (Must be 21 years or older to attend.)


This is a celebration of cultures! If you feel so inclined, get creative and come dressed in something inspired by one of our featured regions. Or just have fun dressing up in your favorite cocktail attire.


Event tickets may be purchased online using the “Add to Cart” button below or by calling Lori Thornton at The Grace (325) 673-4587. Event sponsorships are also available for a limited time.

All proceeds from this event benefit The Grace Museum’s year-round exhibitions and educational programs.
