The 11th Biennial African Lodge No. 459 festivities and reopening will take place beginning on April 25, 26, 27 through 28, 2024.  For this reopening there will be an additional day of activities including a golf tournament.  The theme of the 2024 reopening will be “Legends and Legacy”.

The symbolic re-opening is scheduled to take place Saturday, April 27, 2024 with the reception of visiting Grand Masters together with their delegations. The reopening is expected to be magnificent as sitting Most Worshipful Grand Masters from various jurisdictions have been invited to participate as line officers in full colonial dress and regalia. They will represent each of the original Lodge Officers of African Lodge No. 459.  This re-opening will feature a theatrical presentation of the birth of African Lodge 459 and her progeny.

There will be a “Sights and Sound” speaker series where well-informed Brethren will make presentations at places of historical significance to African Lodge No. 459 and Prince Hall Masonry generally: Museum of African American History; Cambridge Commons, Copps Hill Burial Ground and Castle Island. The “Sights and Sound” speaker series proved to be informative and well received at our last re-opening. The 2024 reopening weekend will again include a Table Lodge gathering in addition to the usual theatrical play, historic tours, shopping and two evenings of fellowship, entertainment and dancing.

Registration fee is $165.00 not including the Table Lodge, which will be an additional $45.00. The registration fee will cover the Reenactment of the Opening of African Lodge No. 459, the theatrical play and evening entertainment only. The “Sights and Sounds” speaker series will cost $35.00 per guest. The Saturday evening entertainment and dance function will be held at the William E. Reed Auditorium at the Masonic Temple beginning at 9 PM. The cost will be $40.00 per guest.  The Deadline for registration will be April 15, 2024.
