The Main Attraction

For more than 30 years, the High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction has been the ultimate party with a purpose in Atlanta! Raising more than $37 million over the years, the Auction will once again raise in the tents at Atlantic Station in March.

This party will bring winemakers and vintners pouring their stellar wines, outstanding chefs cooking their tastiest treats, and enough event for everyone to satiate their desires. Proceeds from the Auction are a vital part of the Museum's exhibition and education plan, helping to make special exhibitions possible. The funds raised also provide dynamic youth educational programs which draw more than 60,000 schoolchildren to the High each year.

This year's theme has a double meaning. Not only is it the ultimate bash, but we are also asking our Benefactors to "party with a purpose" to support our beloved High Museum of Art. Purchase your package soon (before it's sold out) and raise your paddle "HIGH" to support the Museum.
