Sip Happens! Don’t Miss the TC Art & Wine Festival 2013, June 21st-22nd

164560_495780278092_7201281_nThe Traverse City Art & Wine Festival, held annually at the Grand Traverse Commons.

This year will be the hottest ever as the live music features formerly elusive, “Rodriguez,” who shot to stardom in the Oscar-winning documentary, ‘Searching for Sugar Man.’

All the fun happens Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd at this celebration of the region’s wineries and the spectacular culture of Northwest Michigan.

More than 4,000 people attended last year, but if that wasn’t enough, this year an exciting new addition is the exclusive Friday evening “Winemakers Party.” We’re talking total VIP treatment here, where attendees get to try some of the area’s best wines while chatting with the wine makers who created them. 

The Winemakers Party will be from 6-9 PM on the grounds of the Grand Traverse Commons and will feature many of our Festival winemakers mingling with attendees as they each offer tastes or glasses of a single wine for your enjoyment.

As a perfect accompaniment, chefs from seven of the finest restaurants in Leelanau, Old Mission and Traverse City will each present a single small plate designed to perfectly pair with our wines.

For just $50 a limited number of attendees will receive 8 wine tasting tickets and 3 small plate tickets.

Come raise a glass with us!

Look out for Bay Area Recycle for Charities, as they will be in charge of all your recyclables for this event!

Bay Area Recycle for Charities, or BARC, will be present to collect all your recyclables and answer any questions you may have.
