New this year!
For the first time, Bacchanal patrons will also be able to purchase handcrafted beer glasses. The unique, handcrafted glasses were created at the Pretentious Beer Glass Company (PBGC) by four graduates of Tennessee Tech's Craft Center. Headed by Matthew Cummings the PBGC includes Thoryn Ziemba, Sam
Meketon and Everette Hirche. The four hand craft a line of specialty beer and beverage glasses in their hot shop. Also home to a brewery, the Pretentious Beer Glass Company is located in Knoxville, Tennessee. Offered at a special promotional price of $25 available ONLY to Bacchanal donors and attendees, patrons may pre-order the glasses with their Bacchanal reservations. A limited number of glasses are available so order early. Glasses will be packaged and available for pick up at the Bacchanal check-in table.
Bid on stunning art and fine craft donated by regional and nationally renown artists during the live auction. The live auction begins at 2:30pm. Feast on the stunning, gourmet cocktail buffet and sample an extensive selection of wine and beer. Take home a commemorative wine glass or pilsner. Enjoy live music and complimentary valet parking.
We are thankful for our artist donors, generous underwriters, sponsors, friends, and supporters for their contributions to the Bacchanal.
