Word on the Street: SAVOUR 2021

Saturday, September 25, 2021
5:30 – 10:00 pm

SAVOUR is the Racine Art Museum’s annual art benefit, which showcases the diverse flavors of Racine area cuisine paired with art specially created by local artists. In response to the global pandemic, last year’s event was presented entirely online. Now in 2021, SAVOUR will return as an in-person experience while amplifying the virtual components.

Spend the night—under a tent in the gardens at RAM’s Wustum Museum—celebrating the character of Racine. Reminiscent of a throwback street fair, enjoy local street and comfort food vendors, art, games, live entertainment, and an amazing array of auction experiences. Rock your favorite street attire and showcase your retro 1980s/1990s vibe. Party with RAM while giving back to the community by supporting the arts!

SAVOUR 2021 will take place almost entirely outdoors under large tents.

There will be no shortage of sensory experiences at SAVOUR 2021 including:

  • Inventive pairings of visual and culinary art.
  • Samples of delectable food created by the area’s finest restaurants and food vendors.
  • Unlimited craft beer, curated wine, and signature cocktails.
  • Opportunities to chat one-on-one with artists about their inspirations.

  • Original art available for auction.
  • Interactive art activities, including a photography station for stunning group photos.
  • Music provided by Racine record shop, Longshot Vinyl.

The City of Racine requires wearing of masks in all City-owned buildings, which includes RAM’s Wustum Museum. At this time, masks will be required at SAVOUR 2021 while inside the museum and optional while outside on the grounds. Most of the SAVOUR 2021 offerings will take place outdoors.

This may change at any time based on CDC and City of Racine guidelines. Please see our Pandemic Updates page for up-to-date information regarding face mask policies.
