It is time to start dreaming of the season's signature party, the Community Foundation's 14th annual Summer's Last Blast!

Presenting Sponsor BayCoast Bank and the Community Foundation are pleased to announce that Summer's Last Blast is scheduled for September 14 at Gidley Farm in Dartmouth.

If you have been to Summer's Last Blast in the past, you know that one of its unique and exciting aspects is that the location of the event brings guests to some of the most beautiful sites on the South Coast and this year is no exception.  Picturesque Gidley Farm is a 12th generation working farm on 148 acres in the heart of Dartmouth on Tucker Road.  Gidley Farm was purchased in 1669 by Henry Tucker (yup, Tucker Road) because of its crisp flowing spring located by a path long used by Native Americans.  This path became part of the King's Road, the highway of its day, which stretched from Plymouth to Newport during the Colonial Period.

A spectacular setting for our 14th annual Summer's Last Blast, Gidley Farm will transport you to a bygone era--until you step inside our incredible tent with all the first class finishes, gourmet dining, and top shelf bar that makes this event so much fun!

Don't forget to put September 14 on your calendar, because even though we never want it to end, at least we can send summer out in style at Summer's Last Blast!
