Imagine wandering around picturesque downtown Edmonds on a gorgeous summer evening while being entertained by live music, then popping into a local business to sample some luscious local Pacific Northwest wine. This will become a reality the evenings of Saturday, July 6 and Saturday, Aug. 3 from 5-8 p.m. for Art Walk Edmonds’ Summer Wine Walks.

Tickets are now available for $30 at www.ArtWalkEdmonds.com/wine-walks. Come sip local wines, shop small, socialize with good friends and support the arts in Edmonds. Buy your tickets soon — sell-outs are expected this year as in the past.

Art Walk Edmonds, in partnership with Seattle Uncorked, is bringing a variety of local Pacific Northwest wineries to your favorite downtown Edmonds business locations. Meet the local winemakers who will be pouring tastes of their hand-crafted wines in various shops. These award-winning boutique wineries will each have a few options for our wine-loving public to taste.

You are sure to find a new favorite bottle or two these evenings. Bottles of wine can be purchased directly at the tasting tables or at the Pop-Up Wine Shop set up at Coldwell Banker Bain, tax-free for the evening. A percentage of every purchase goes back to Art Walk Edmonds to fund the arts in Edmonds.

Art Walk Edmonds is grateful to sponsors Coldwell Banker Bain of Edmonds, Ombu Salon + Spa, Cole Gallery, RBC Wealth Management – Krause & Thorpe Wealth Management Team, Wendy Hartfelder and Team Greene – Coldwell Banker Bain.

While not an official part of the Wine Walks, local tasting room Vie & Vin is offering a special the day of the Wine Walks. This includes buy one, get one 50% off glass pours and flights, plus 10% off all purchases throughout the shop.

The wine walks are Art Walk Edmonds’ biggest fundraisers of the year. Profits raised will help continue to support the Art Walk Edmonds month-long art events and Third Thursday Art Walks, and will also help fund entertainment and install new murals and public art.

Participation in the Edmonds Wine Walks will mean you are contributing toward a great cause and supporting the arts in the community. Art Walk Edmonds, a nonprofit organization, organizes and promotes the monthly Art Walks held in downtown Edmonds. Learn more about Art Walk Edmonds at www.ArtWalkEdmonds.com.
