Art Food & Drink Parkway District

Bacchanal is PAFA's flagship wine affair, attended by over 350 wine and art lovers and raising over $500,000 annually to support PAFA student scholarships and community education programs.

The black-tie gala features wine tastings, silent and live auctions, a seated dinner, live entertainment and dancing.

The 2018 Gala Co-Chairs are Emily Cavanagh and Martha McGeary Snider.

The 20th Anniversary event will honor Donald R. Caldwell and will welcome Njideka Akunyili Crosby as our Artist Honoree.

The weekend kicks off with the Winemaker Dinner series held in private residences the week leading up to November 10th. The honored wineries are paired with a restaurant/chef for an exclusive dining experience. The vintners or their representatives are in attendance at the respective dinners.
