The Imperial Cities Tour: Experience Breathtaking Group Travel In Support of the Arts

CEO Steve Bellamy, CAA, and more to host travel night presentation Wednesday, January 30

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – With a new year comes new opportunities and in that spirit, Confederation Centre of the Arts is launching a truly distinctive experience for members of its “Founders Circle” — the chance to join an exclusive 11-day cultural adventure to the Imperial Cities: Prague, Vienna, and Budapest.

With proceeds going to support arts and heritage programming  at the Centre, this grand group travel tour comes at the request of the Founders’ Circle membership. Taking place from October 21 to 31, 2019, this trip will be organized by partners at CAA Member Choice Vacations, with flights leaving from Charlottetown. CAA are the production sponsor for the Centre’s crown jewel, Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™.

Hosted by Founders’ Circle Members John Steinsky, the Honorary Consul of the Czech Republic, and Brenda Steinsky, this thrilling expedition will include castle tours, guided excursions, a classical music performance, and a cruise down the Danube River.

“Our membership has been asking for a group travel experience and we have listened,” remarks Steve Bellamy, CEO of Confederation Centre. “We are thankful to the Steinskys for their hospitality and to our members for their commitment to supporting arts and heritage programming at the Centre. This promises to be an unforgettable tour of the Imperial Cities and the Steinskys are already going above and beyond building the itinerary.”

The tour will also include a Renaissance-style dinner in a medieval castle near Budapest and a stop at the Lobkowicz Palace, home to the largest art collection in the Czech Republic, spanning over 600 years of family history. Other highlights consist of wine-sampling and dinner in the picturesque Grinzing region, and striking countryside views and cultural outings in each of the three famed cities.

CAA, the Steinskys, and Bellamy will host a travel presentation night on Wednesday, January 30 at 7 p.m. in the cozy confines of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. Shane Coupland with CAA Member Choice Vacations will guide interested members through all the details, from booking to passports to currency and take any questions. The Centre’s culinary team will also offer a sampling of European cuisine from the Imperial Cities.  Come and learn more about the experience, the hosts, and how to join group travel to one of the most spectacular destinations in the world.

Prospective travelers and Founders’ Circle members can RSVP or send questions to Ellen Theuerkauf, at etheuerkauf@confederationcentre.com or (902) 629-1159. For more information on the Founders Circle, visit confederationcentre.com/support/membership/
