NOTE: Due to the social gathering limitations outlined in Virginia’s COVID-19 restrictions, this event has been cancelled. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding of our attention to the health and safety of our visitors, employees, and volunteers.


Join us for a seated dinner in Thomas Jefferson’s villa as we celebrate the beginning of a new year. Following a multicourse dinner with wine pairings, Mr. Jefferson will reminisce about the holiday season’s festivities and recount his wedding to Martha. Must be 21 and over. Tickets for the New Year’s Day Candlelight Wine Dinner are $175 per person or $300 per couple. Seating inside the house is limited to 30 to allow for social distancing; reservations are required and must be purchased by December 24, due to catering considerations.

Please note: Tables will be spaced at least 6′ apart from other tables. However, guests sitting at the same table will be in close proximity of each other. All servers will wear face coverings.

NEW this year: Secure a private table for you and your guests! Tables of varying sizes are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to request a private table, contact Elise Paisant, Program and Event Coordinator, at 434-534-8110 or elise@poplarforest.org before purchasing tickets. Please note we will have set numbers of private tables to reserve and cannot guarantee that a private table is available, especially closer to the date of the event.
