2021 Chemin de Fer Hybrid Weekend

January 21, 2021

April 30 – May 1

Please join us for the 2021 Chemin de Fer Hybrid Weekend on April 30 – May 1, 2021. Since 1975 hundreds of guests have taken a ride on our Chemin de Fer charity train—the Academy’s largest fundraiser of the year. This year we invite you to experience a journey to outer space and prepare for The Launch! 

Our Annual Chemin de Fer Dinner Auction will be held May 1,  however the Academy will be hosting a socially distant, in-person, outdoor celebration on the evening of Friday, April 30! We hope to bring some of your favorite elements of past Chemins, but this time, under the stars! The celebration will be held on the upper parking lot (The Launch Pad) with limited tables available of 4 available! To purchase your seats on the auction website— HERE!  What to wear!? The evening will feature an elegant dinner and decorations. Cocktail attire is suggested.

While imagining where the Chemin de Fer Charity Train might take us next, an old engraving from the 19th century was discovered of people gathering at a train station in Paris boarding to travel the Moon From there we knew we had to take our Academy community on an out-of-this-world experience this year!
