Join us for Riviera Regatta, a nautical-themed party reminiscent of a summer night on the French Riviera. This seaworthy celebration coincides with the America’s Cup races on the San Francisco Bay, and the exhibition Impressionists on the Water, a survey of French Impressionists' fascination with the sport of competitive and recreational sailing. Nautical cocktail attire encouraged!
VIP guests are treated to a champagne toast at sunset; guided tours of Impressionists on the Water; and special access to an exclusive VIP Lounge, offering a wide variety of appetizers, cocktails, and desserts.
All guests will enjoy a light buffet of French-inspired treats and complimentary cocktails, after-hours exhibition viewing, music by the Glasses, dancing to the beats of DJ Marija Dunn, and an array of seemingly-impossible feats performed by Circus Center San Francisco alumni.
