Organizing staff is please to report that that the economy had not daunted the interest of most restaurants and culinary business participation. We are enjoying the return of most culinary establishments from years past and the addition of several new ones.

It is also significant to note that in respect of the economic times that the admission price remains at the 2007 and 2008 levels. General Admission is merely $35 and includes one souvenir wine glass and the opportunity to savor samplings from 20+ restaurants, wineries and culinary businesses.

Plumas Arts members pay a discounted presale-only admission of $30.
Plumas Arts invites you to take this opportunity to become a member with your benefit ticket purchase, if you are not yet one, and commence your support and savings with this initial investment.

“We owe a great debt to all of the generous establishments and individuals who create such wonderful event. The beautiful part is that this is very much a win-win-win situation for all who participate. The culinary artists win because we inspire them to present themselves and showcase some of their best work to a very interested audience. The public wins in an opportunity to be the beneficiary of such creative endeavors, meet the artists who rarely have the opportunity to leave their kitchens and compile a mental wish list of where to go out for great meals in all parts of county. Plumas Arts wins by celebrating culinary artists and presenting them to them a very interested clientele while enjoying a most necessary and appreciated financial boost.”

Another great part of the event is a Silent Auction. “Some very creative items have been donated,” comments Auction Coordinators Linda McDermott and Trish Taylor. Local merchants and Plumas Arts members have made generous donations of services, adventures and unique items. There will also be a grand selection of framed prints and original art by local artists.
