Live entertainment from DJ and electric violinist Timothy Lovelock, fashion demonstrations from Saks Fifth Avenue, and car tours will also take place all throughout the evening of Bacchanalia.
So what’s new this year at Bacchanlia? Plenty! There will be an exclusive VIP pre-party held one hour before the Bacchanalia event where guests are able to get a “first taste” of the six presenting vintners. Tickets to this event can be purchased for $50 at www.bocabacchanal.com. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the vintner and taste select wines. This is a very exclusive event with limited tickets — so if you’re interested, better get on those tickets FAST!
There will also be new technology, making auction bidding easier than ever before. The Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum will be utilizing a high-tech auction app called BIDPAL, making it easy for every attendee to bid on their favorite auction lot straight from their mobile phones — no live auction needed!
