The Folger Shakespeare Library's annual gala is our largest and most significant fundraiser of the year, providing support to the Folger and its impact driving discovery, transforming education, and creating experiences. 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.

The 2017 Gala is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Folger Theatre, the vibrant centerpiece of the Folger’s public programs. In the unique setting of North America’s first Elizabethan-style theater, Folger Theatre produces innovative stagings that have thrilled Washington audiences for decades.
