CalArts’ campus is transforming into the place to be from 6:30-10:30 p.m. on Aug. 16, said Ray Tippet, executive director for the Circle of Hope.

But the wine is only the beginning, with food and beer also playing an increasing role.
“There will be a lot of new additions sure to delight the beer aficionados,” Tippet added. “For the foodies, you will find Santa Clarita’s restaurants serving samples of their signature specials. And for the foodies with a sweet tooth, make sure you also stop by dessert tables early so you don’t miss out.”
Local crooner Jimmy Carnelli and his band will be providing the entertainment again this year.
The event is also scheduled to feature special guest, DiLee, who is just finishing up her latest album and will be performing, as well.
Nine Santa Clarita Valley restaurants and four bakeries are on a growing list of vendors participating on the food side.
