|Art & Wine Walk is Sept. 15|
Looking for something to do Saturday afternoon? Enjoy the Art & Wine Walk in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. On Saturday, Sept. 15, from 2 to 5 p.m., stroll through downtown and view work by local artists at galleries, bars, restaurants and other businesses that will serve wine samples or other non-alcoholic refreshment. Most artwork will be available for purchase, and artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
The Art & Wine Walk begins at the Empire Arts Center, where maps can be purchased for $10. All ages are welcome to attend, and those over 21 will receive a wristband, allowing participation in wine tasting. At each participating business, the map will be stamped (wine consumption is not required to receive a stamp). Turn in the map at the end of the Walk to enter a drawing for one of two gift baskets of prizes donated by participating businesses.
The Art & Wine Walk is organized by the North Valley Arts Council and the Downtown Leadership Group, and is sponsored by the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitors Bureau, Clear Channel Radio, and Gilly’s Bar & Grill.
Another Art & Wine Walk is set for Oct. 20, from 2 to 5 p.m.
For more information, or to participate as a hosting business or an exhibiting artist, please contact the North Valley Arts Council at (701) 777-6120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
