At the Art Party itself, there are a number of Food and Beverage options available.

In the VIP section, there is an open bar from 6pm to 8pm, during which time there is also catered buffet.  After 8pm, there will be a full no-host bar.

Relax!  There’s way too much to see at the Art Party to take it all in on one night.  Go for the Gala night, stay downtown, go out for a meal at any Downtown San Jose eating establishment on Saturday or Sunday and bring the receipt with you on Sunday.  It’s a free pass to view all the art you missed on Saturday night, because there was just so much happening.


Anne & Mark’s Art Party is held at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds, about 2 miles south of Downtown San Jose. (See map.)

There is an easily accessible county-owned parking lot right across the street, but it is not part of the Fairgrounds itself, so we cannot guarantee the price of parking for any of the days.  When possible, we encourage carpooling and ride sharing to enhance your experience.


Santa Clara County Fairgrounds
344 Tully Road, San Jose, CA 95111


See map for parking location on the North side of Tully, opposite the blue arch. Check back closer to the date, because we will be posting more detailed information about parking here.

The Art Party is an act of folly supported only by the kindness of strangers, friends, artists, and volunteers.  We don’t honestly know HOW it happens, but it does, and we hope you will consider being a part of it.  You can help by spreading the word in any way you can (Facebook, letters, phone calls, outright coercion….), volunteering to come down and help….what-ever skills you have, we can likely use them.  Or, the biggest thing we need…FINANCIAL SUPPORT to make this all happen.  Everything you can do to help will make the Art Party a better experience for everyone.

Thank you so much!
