About the Picnic & Auction

Over the past decade the Annual Smith Fine Arts Picnic & Auction has grown from a small gathering of arts supporters

to becoming the major fundraising event for the series. Proceeds from the Picnic and Auction help support the series and its educational missions. For 36 years the series has touched the lives of thousands of local students and community members through quality performing arts. You can help us continue our success by attending this exciting fundraising event! Join us or an evening of gourmet food and wine, live music and exciting items to win!
