Masonic Village Anniversary FAQ

Thank you so much for your interest in the Masonic Village 125th Anniversary event!  We are looking forward to celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime milestone with friends and supporters.

What is the date, time, and location of the event?

The Masonic Village 125th Anniversary celebration will be held on Friday, May 5th, in Fellowship Center at the Masonic Village at Burlington Campus located at 1114 Oxmead Road in Burlington Township. There will be a VIP press event at 6:30pm, followed by the Table Lodge gala dinner at 7pm.

Tickets are $100 per person if purchased by April 1st. If purchased after April 1st, tickets are $125 per person.  Guests will be seated at tables of 10.  When you purchase tickets, please provide the names of those in your party so we may include them on our guest check-in list.

What is a table lodge?

A Masonic Table Lodge is an ancient custom of proposing and drinking toasts.There are ALWAYS seven toasts given — no more, no less.  There is a lighthearted rivalry between the two sides of the room to see which can best orchestrate the toast in unison, and it greatly adds to the fun of the event.  A Masonic Table Lodge is usually a very private event for members only, but for this very auspicious occasion the Freemasons are opening their doors to the public and inviting them in to share in this beautiful celebration.

What is the dress code for the evening?

Suit and tie for men, and a dress or skirt for women.It is not a black-tie event, but if one were to wear a tux or gown, that would be in keeping with the celebratory nature of the gala.

Can anyone attend the VIP Press Event?

No.The VIP Press Event is an exclusive cocktail hour limited to gala event sponsors, government dignitaries, Masonic Village administration, and the highest officers of NJ Grand Masons.  All other gala guests are asked to join us for the Table Lodge dinner at 7pm.
