Over 130 Festival Fans and Artists joined us on April 23rd to celebrate the 450th birthday of William Shakespeare!

This year's annual event marked the 450th birthday of one of the world’s great literary and dramatic talents. Held at the Verdi Club in San Francisco, it was an evening of fun and festivity, food and drink, words and wonder -- as the photos will attest!

This one-night only event featured original performances celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday. Delicious food, drink and cheerful conversation, plus a special appearance by the birthday boy himself made this a night to remember.

This was the third annual celebration of Shakespeare, having started in 2012 with an event marking the 30-Year Anniversary of the Festival held at Adobe Headquarters. In 2013 the annual event moved to the Verdi Club, where we returned for 2014's Birthday Celebration. If you couldn't make this year's Celebratory Dinner you were certainly missed, but we look forward to continuing the fun with you at upcoming Festival programs -- and at next year's Annual Event!
