Cold Supper, Hot Whiskey and a Touch of Fever

August 12, 6pm-9pm

Tickets are available online ONLY.  Tickets will not be sold at the door.

Spend an evening with two iconic Memphis legends, Old Dominick Distillery and the Woodruff-Fontaine Mansion, as we take refuge from the summer heat and enjoy a whiskey tasting and food pairing suited to our sultry summer nights.

Partaking in cold suppers and hot whiskey is an old Southern tradition that affords us the opportunity of "cooling off" in order to survive our sweltering summer season.

Break away from the festivities and stroll the dimly lit mansion, staged for the 1878 yellow fever epidemic that struck Memphis with a blow that shaped our history.

Enjoy a night of supper, drinks and remembrance as we stay cool and fever free!

$60 per admission

21 & up event

Admission price includes whiskey tastings, light hot d'oeuvres, 2 complimentary drink tickets and a tour of the mansion.  This event will continue rain or shine.  Tickets are non-refundable.  Must present valid ID upon entry.

Yellow Jack!


On display August 3 - September 3

Take refuge from the summer heat and help us shutter up the mansion!  Yellow Fever is coming to Memphis and we're preparing the mansion for a season of mourning.

The dimly lit mansion will be staged as the 1878 Yellow Fever Epidemic will be recounted and our martyrs remembered.  

APTA Members always receive free admission!
