for Empty Bowls 2019

For years our dedicated Empty Bowls attendees have told us that they wished for a less crowded and more relaxed atmosphere at this wonderful annual event.

We heard you!!!

In 2018, we moved to a new home, the Forni Room at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds giving us ample, accessible and convenient parking - to allow our guests to relax and sit comfortably with family and friends.  There is a small dance floor area, an expanded Silent Auction section, and more Fair Trade and local craft vendors.

In 2019, we have shifted the hours slightly, allowing for earlier entry.

Come join us for the EVER-EVOLVING Empty Bowls Supper. . . Bring your family, friends and neighbors and. . .

Be part of the solution.

Don't miss out....

Be sure to come to the next
