Sunset Dinner

Celebrating the Legacy of Marguerite Wildenhain
Austin Creek State Recreation Area
Saturday, July 18, 2020 - Due to Covid-19 we are rethinking this event for 2020. Please check back for an update 
4:00 PM - 8:00 PM


PLEASE NOTE: (As of May 1, 2020) At this time we are unsure as to whether or not we will be able to hold the Annual Sunset Dinner. We certainly hope so, but that determination will depend on the directive of the Sonoma County Health Officer. At this time, all large events have been prohibited before Labor Day weekend due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are not sure if this includes events of less than 100 people so as soon as we know we will update this webpage.



Stewards is proud to present the 7th Annual Sunset Dinner! Join us for a magical evening, as we honor the legacy of world renowned potter Marguerite Wildenhain, and the lives of the students she touched. The event will benefit Pond Farm Pottery and the ongoing work that Stewards is doing to restore this historic site.

This year we will also feature some of our Artists-in-Residence and their works. 

An opening reception will start at 4:00 pm at Pond Farm with appetizers and Rose Wine donated by Rodney Strong, while Pond Farm alumni take guests on an interpretive tour of the building. Guests will then transition to Schoolhouse Flat at 5:00 pm for dinner and to enjoy breathtaking views of Austin Creek State Recreation Area's 5,700 acres.
Come enjoy a hearty gourmet meal prepared by local caterers, with refreshing wine pairings and live entertainment!
