Bishop Bash Sponsorships

About Us

The Bash at The Bishop is our annual gala to support The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature — the largest natural history museum on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Museum highlights include fossil evidence of Florida’s earliest animal inhabitants, the Montague Tallant collection of prehistoric and early post-contact archeological artifacts, the Environmental Hall focusing on Florida’s ecology and biodiversity in the Pine Uplands and Riverine Galleries, the Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat where we prepare manatees for their return to the wild, the Mosaic Backyard Universe and the beautiful Picturing Science special exhibition!

Please join us for the grand return of The Bash at The Bishop, benefiting one of Bradenton’s top cultural venues! You won’t want to miss this incredible evening including an exquisite four-course seated culinary experience, entertainment, silent and live auctions, dancing to the musical stylings of Bay Kings Band and more!

The Bash at The Bishop will delight and entertain guests from the moment of their arrival.

The Bash at the Bishop is almost sold out!
