We can't wait to see you on Saturday, June 17th at 5:30PM when the doors open at the Colman Estate!
Wear comfortable clothes - flats, boots, khakis and jeans - so you can wander the grounds of the Colman Estate with ease. Ride services like taxis or Lyft are a great way to leave the driving to someone else, and carpooling is a great way to travel with friends and lessen environmental impact - though there is ample street parking if you choose to drive. Inclement weather? Don't worry - we will have umbrellas for you. Just wear your boots and bring a light jacket.
You'll see a sign that says 9343 Fauntleroy and balloons pointing you where to go. At the driveway, you'll be greeted by our amazing volunteers who will point you toward check-in.
At check-in, you'll find everything you need to get started - coat check, bid number, food, drinks and more.
THE COCKTAIL HOUR
From 5:30pm to 7pm you can enjoy:
- Gertrude Stein’s Dr. Faustus Lights the Lights staged throughout the grounds
- The silent auction
- $25 "surprise" balloons
- Drinks and hors d'oeuvres
DINNER & LIVE AUCTION
At 7pm the Cocktail hour will end and dinner will begin. From 7:15pm-9:30pm you can enjoy a delicious meal, sip delightful drinks, bid on exciting items in the Live Auction and wrap up dinner with an audience favorite: the dessert dash.
ENDING THE EVENING
After dinner, stop by the check-out tent to collect your winning bids. Volunteers will help you stow your items and belongings while you dance to live music under the stars. When the evening ends at 11:30pm, head home (or out on your next adventure) with a smile on your face - you supported ArtsWest.
