The Folger Shakespeare Library's annual gala is our largest and most significant fundraiser of the year, providing vital support to the outstanding cultural and educational programming the Folger offers to the greater Washington area and nationwide. And, as one of Washington's most elegant social evenings this special event is attended by the leaders of the social, business, government, and diplomatic communities.

Folger Board member, May Liang and her husband James Lintott are the 2016 Folger Gala Co-Chairs. 2016 is a monumental year when the world will commemorate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death with events that pay tribute to his enduring legacy. The Folger is leading the United States' commemoration with our Wonder of Will programming, and the Folger Gala will be the pinnacle celebration. The evening’s backdrop will be the exhibition, America's Shakespeare, which will use a fascinating selection of rare letters, costumes, and books to show how Shakespeare's words and ideas weave through our national story from print to radio, television, film, and digital media.
