Free Programs include:
- 6pm – Show featuring designs by Chloe Rose
- Live music performance by Liliana Herrera
- 6pm – Mezcal tastings by Wahaka Mezcal: Piazzoni Murals Room
Wahaka Mezcal will be conducting a taste and will be sharing information about the smoky Mexican-made elixir. Its Traditional line uses 100% organically-farmed espadín agave, and includes Joven Espadín and Reposado con Gusano.

- 7pm – Film Screening: Pedro Almodovar’s Kika
