Taste of the Festival

An evening on the Green to benefit the Guilford Performing Arts Festival. Small plates, live music, art-inspired American wine and previews of our performers’ weekend shows

Friday, September 24, 6:15-9:15, rain or shine

Join us under the tent on the Guilford Green to kick off the 2021 festival and get a taste of the new work that our award-winning artists will premiere in the following two days. We’ll be serving up American arts-themed wine, local beer and soft drinks, small plates provided by The Marketplace at Guilford Food Center, live music by guitarist Steve Shelton’s Scoville Jazz Unit, and a wine raffle. It’ll be an elegant night out with your friends, neighbors and some of the coolest people on the Shoreline.

Tickets are $125 per person. All proceeds benefit the festival, a 501(c)(3) organization. The cost of tickets and other donations to the festival are deductible to the extent allowable by law. You can buy tickets by credit card or PayPal here, or you can email Peter at [email protected] to pay by check or make other arrangements.
