Preview Party: Friday, April 20, 6:30-10 pm

Each year the festival makes its debut at the Friday evening Preview Party. With close to 1,000 people attending, the Preview Party is a ticketed event that features select wines, signature cocktails, and a buffet of gourmet hors d’oeuvres presented by Lee Towery Catering. Most important, the Preview Party is a community celebration that directly supports AVA’s mission of connecting art and community.”
