You are warmly invited to join us for an evening of sipping, snacking, socializing, and shopping from local artisans and merchants. With the wonderful selection of carefully curated vendors, you’re sure to find something special for Mom (and hopefully something for yourself).
We’re back to where the magic first began! Situated outdoors on the gorgeous veranda at The Starting Gate at GreatHorse, we’ve designed a luxurious shopping experience that’s both intimate and spacious. A cash bar with savory snacks will be available, as well as valet parking. Be sure to stay long enough to enjoy the sunset over the valley!
Each guest will receive a complimentary tote bag to shop with. With there being a limited amount of tickets, we encourage you to reserve yours as soon as possible.
