Raptors Uncorked!: $75

Venue: 1859 Ashton Villa

If you’d love to have a personal Raptor Experience with a touch of history, this one-of-a-kind wildlife celebration is for you! Raptors Uncorked is moving to a new location at the historic 1859 Ashton Villa on Broadway, but will still include the wildly popular audience participation. Built by James M. Brown, Ashton Villa was the first house to be built on Broadway Boulevard and the first mansion to be built on the island. Surviving the Great Storm of 1900, the house was opened to the public in 1974, but is no longer available for public tours. Raptors Uncorked registrants, however, are being offered access to the house for docent guided tours starting at 5:30 p.m. prior to dinner and the show.  This rare opportunity will be a new and welcome addition to your Raptor Experience.

In addition to our new location, back by popular demand, 6 lucky audience members will have an opportunity of a lifetime to participate in the show (names will be drawn at the event – it could be YOURS!). So, don’t miss out on an evening that is sure to overflow with fun and spontaneity, thanks to the unpredictable combination of live birds, and a live audience!

Click here to see one of 2019 audience members become part of the show! 

After you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the Ashton Villa, you can enjoy a three-course buffet dinner catered by Chef Mary Bass. Red and white wine will be served, in keeping with our “uncorked” tradition.

Raptors Uncorked + VIP Experience: $125

Start your evening off as a VIP! Raptors Uncorked is offering an exclusive VIP Raptor Experience limited to 12 people! This experience will put you up close and personal with the birds as you get a behind the scenes encounter with Sky Kings Falconry. This VIP experience will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will guarantee you the opportunity to interact with select birds. Tickets for this event are sold in combination with the dinner and not sold separately.
