Villa Luna: Friends of the Villa Terrace Biennial Moon Viewing Party

Back to Events

September 28, 2023


Join the Friends of the Villa Terrace for an evening of live music performed by local artists, seasonal hors d’oeuvres from the White House, craft cocktails by Equal Parts, a silent auction, tarot readings, palmistry and the romance of the Villa's Italian Renaissance-style architecture under the light of the Harvest Moon.

Villa Luna is the biennial fundraiser and moon viewing party hosted by the Friends of Villa Terrace to support the Museum and its Renaissance Gardens. This evening of live music, craft cocktails,  seasonal hors d’oeuvres, astronomy and mysticism is a community favorite.

Experience the full beauty of the moon through a telescope provided by Milwaukee Public Museum astronomer Bob Bonadurer.
