PARKING (see map, right)
There will be no parking at the property or on Front Street. Tabor Academy has generously provided the use of their parking lots at the Fireman Performing Arts Center/Hoyt Hall and the Fish Athletic Center, both located on Front Street and less than a 10 minute walk (0.4 miles) from the event. Parking is also available at Sippican School (12 minute walk/0.6 miles), and you may find parking on several side streets. Marion residents can park at Island Wharf, but a 2023 residential sticker is required to use this lot. This lot is also used for harbor parking and the bandstand (with Friday evening concerts). We have limited spaces available for those with mobility challenges who may need to park close to the property. Please speak to a MAC representative upon arrival for details.
All tickets that have not been picked up from the Marion Art Center are being held at will call/pick up at our check-in tables. If you requested your tickets be mailed and didn't receive them, they are being held for you. Please check in under the last name of the person who purchased the tickets. If you purchased tickets for others, please have your guests provide their names, emails, and phone numbers at check in if they wish to participate in the silent auction or raffle.
SILENT AUCTION/RAFFLE (ending at 8:00pm)
We have some fantastic items in our silent auction and raffle! Your ticket to the party has a ticket number which will serve as your bidder number and your raffle ticket identification number. We encourage you to bring cash for raffle tickets, but we can take credit card payments as needed. Raffle tickets must be purchased at time of use with cash, card, or check. The silent auction and raffle will end promptly at 8:00pm. Our volunteers will need some time to collect the bid sheets and compile our list of winners! Check out for winners will begin at 8:15pm. If you decide to leave early before the party ends but participated in auction bidding, please see a MAC representative to place your card on file. We'll contact you if you've won!
