Circus Under the Stars Gala

Location & Contact Information


The two-tiered evening begins with a cocktail reception featuring local distilleries. While enjoying specialty cocktails and inventive hors d’oeuvres, guests can view our current exhibit, Character and Narrative, featuring illustrators that create deep characters through visual storytelling.

The party continues outside in the courtyard as we hold our ever popular Snatch & Dash event - if your ticket is drawn you have 30 seconds to enter a room with over 40 items including an impressive selection of artwork, extraordinary experiences, and luxury items. Each of the approximately 40 packages is worth a minimum of $250 each. Each gala ticket includes one Snatch & Dash ticket.

Our festive theme for the gala will feature your favorite circus foods with a gourmet twist along with a number of performers throughout the night to delight our guests. Dancing, music, and a live auction will round out an extraordinary night for patrons in support of Foothills Art Center's exhibitions and programs. 

Doors open at 6pm. Free parking available at FAC and in adjacent Colorado School of Mines parking lots.
