The 110th anniversary of a fateful day in 1912 will be on the minds of those attending a very unique event this April.

The Delaware County Historical Society is joining with Arena Fair Theatre to present “The Last Dinner on the Titanic,” a special fundraising event. The evening will include dinner, a live auction, Titanic reenactors, and a cash bar. Period music will be provided by the Arenda Fair singers and the Liberty High School Chamber Quartet.

Attendees will have an opportunity to eat dinner at a table with a famous passenger on the Titanic.

The event will take place in The Barn at Stratford, 2690 Stratford Road in Delaware on Saturday, April 9 beginning at 6 PM. Proceeds will benefit both organizations.

Attendees are encouraged to dress in period costumes (think Edwardian or early Downton Abbey). Black tie or semi formal to formal wear will also be appropriate for the event. Discounts for tux rental are available from What the Tux! in downtown Delaware. Tickets may be purchased through Eventbrite or by following the link on the Delaware County Historical Society website –

The deadline to reserve tickets is March 31.
