Wine + food festival: The Vintner Gala + Auction

07 | 23 @ 5:30 pm

Get ready to transcend the traditional in this one-night-only immersive gala honoring our founder and original Crested Butte place maker, Jeff Hermanson. Enjoy an evening of inspirational art experiences that merge your senses with surprising pop-up performances by John Bukaty, aerialists from Wild Hare Dance, work from CB’s littlest artists, live musical performances, film presentations, and more.

Your experiential evening begins with artisan cocktails from Marble Distilling and boutique wines crafted just for the Center (yes and amen, exquisite drink offerings will flow freely all night) so you can sip and mingle while perusing the silent auction, chock full of unique objects and enviable experiences.

A glamorous and delectable dinner from a dream team of chefs will be served in the Steddy Theater while you take in live performances. James Beard Award-winning Top Chef Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Ultreia, Bistro Vendome, Stoic + Genuine), James Beard Nominee Chef Dana Rodriguez (Casa Bonita, Work + Class, Super Mega Bien), acclaimed restauranter and tastemaker Troy Guard (TAG Restaurant Group), and powerhouse Erika Rojas (Prieto’s Catering + graduate of Comal Heritage Food Incubator) will craft a multi-course meal paired with wines from Tablas Creek (winemaker Neil Collins), Bodega de Edgar (winemaker Edgar Torres), and more.

This is the Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so be sure to round out your engagement by bidding in the live auction to complete your unforgettable evening of immersive performances and transcendent food + wine all in service to the arts in Crested Butte.
