The Vergennes Opera House is a historical gem in Vergennes, VT. Located at the heart of downtown, this restored 1897 theatre hosts community gatherings, concerts by local, national, and international performers and many amazing theater productions. To maintain its ability to provide quality entertainment the opera house holds several fundraising events but the most popular by bar is the Decadent Dessert Bash, which will be taking place November 7, 2014.
This is of course the “sweetest” event put on by the Vergennes Opera House as a love for sweet desserts is combined with exceptional jazz music to offer guests a truly memorable night. As a special guest of the evening you will treated to a variety of desserts made by some of the top-notch restaurants and bakeshops. Last year donors included Champlain Valley Creamery, Middlebury Chocolates, Goodie Goodies, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Mona’s Pies, and many more. Area Vineyards such as Lincoln Peak Winery will also be offering samples and bottles for purchase. The amazingly talented Ray Vega Quintet will be providing soothing jazz for the evening. Sit and listen while you enjoy your dessert or as you check out which items you want to try to snag in the auction.
