The annual Art of Mixology event at Orinda Theatre Square is Lamorinda Arts Council's largest fundraiser of the year with limited capacity (compared to previous years). The event includes both professional and amateur bartenders creating luscious craft cocktails as the audience and judges sample and vote for their favorites. It's an event not to be missed!

This year, we are also bringing back our popular Art of Mixology Cocktail Kits, which were offered in lieu of the live event in 2020. These kits will include everything you need (except the alcohol) to mix up your very own craft cocktail from the comfort of home! Pre-order your mixology kits today!
