April 28 and 29
ShuttleCork 2022

Together again in person for ShuttleCork 2022!

We’re back, live and in person, serving up the best in food and wine! Join us for the annual ShuttleCork event – two stellar nights of food, wine, and fundraising, supporting education, community, and access for all, at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. You will meet vintners, taste fine wines and food, and participate in the live auction featuring rare wines, luxury travel, and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Choose your ShuttleCork experience: Join us for both nights, including Thursday’s Winemaker Dinners in private homes, plus Friday’s Grand Tasting and Live Auction. Or, simply attend the Friday-night event only.

Whichever choice you make, we appreciate your support. We look forward to seeing you at the museum’s largest fundraiser of the year!
