We'll begin at 4PM with a rum tasting and pre-show discussion with our featured artists. The Ragdale House will also be open for tours.

Bomba Con Buya will take the stage at 5PM. This dynamic Chicago-based ensemble aims to preserve and advance Bomba, Puerto Rico's oldest surviving African-rooted music and dance tradition.

An optional family-style meal in the Ragdale garden follows the show. Chef Roberto Pérez of Urban Pilón will present an enticing menu inspired by Puerto Rico and the Caribbean:

We'll close out the night with music and dance, featuring the deejay stylings of Sadie Woods.
