The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) invites the community to help celebrate 30 years of fostering creativity with a new signature event, the Pearl Party, featuring Blues/Soul Artist Eddie 9V in Alys Beach on Friday, November 18th.

“The pearl is an iconic symbol of wisdom and strength gained through time and experience. In the last 30 years, the CAA has grown and developed into the creative pearl of our community, and this milestone is made even more special by celebrating it in beautiful and iconic Alys Beach,” said CAA Executive Director Jennifer Steele. “We invite everyone to wear their favorite pearls, put on their dancing shoes and join us for a fun and casual evening that celebrates our past and toasts our future.”

The Pearl Party will take place on Kelly Green located at 23 Somerset Street in Alys Beach. Doors open to the general public at 6:30 p.m. with Eddie 9V taking the stage at 7p.m. There will be a cash bar and food trucks onsite with scrumptious offerings.
