The Binational Alliance invites you to join us to celebrate 10 years of Doors Open Niagara and 200 years of Peace between Canada and the United States on Saturday, August 31 at Jackson Triggs Niagara Estate Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
You’ll enjoy a magical evening of local wine and food, architectural exhibits from the University at Buffalo Architecture & Education program, photography exhibits from the first decade of Doors Open Art of Architecture and Architage contests, the Unbuilt Niagara video retrospective – the best designs never built, and a special binational dance showcase featuring dancers from Toronto’s Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Buffalo’s Configuration Dance Theatre and artists Amy Taravella, Lacey Smith and Veronica Lake. We’ll be premiering two new Peace Dances choreographed by Gerry Trentham of Pounds per Square Inch and danced to a new musical composition by Julia Aplin and her band Heartsong.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and guests can take advantage of the wonderful culinary options provided by Jackson Triggs – enjoy an exquisite barrel cellar dinner with wine-paired courses or relax on the patio with the barbeque selections provided by the on-site chefs under the direction of David Penny and recommended Jackson Triggs wine for tastings or by the glass.
Ticket prices start at $55 for the winery exhibits and amphitheatre dance performance and wine and food samples, with VIP tickets available for those who would like to take in the barrel cellar dinner and end the evening in the executive lounge with a private gathering to meet the artists and take away a special memento of the evening at the winery.
