About Dinner in the Alley

This year marks a pivotal milestone for Verge. Dinner in the Alley serves as a celebration to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of our groundbreaking in 2013. In honor of this, we'll be recognizing the amazing community leaders and Verge champions who brought us to where we are today, especially the remarkable individuals who shared our vision and invested in us ten years ago.

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour where guests are invited to tour the facility, including The First 10 Years, an exhibition commemorating Verge's artists and history from the day we moved into 625 S Street to the present. Following drinks, guests will assemble outdoors for a delicious dinner provided by Hawks Provisions + Public House.

On an annual basis we serve thousands of community members through exhibitions, educational programs, specialized resources, and resident studio space. Our ability to provide these vital resources to Sacramento is enabled by the support of our community — We hope that you will join us on May 20th to celebrate where we've been and where we're going!
