Experience “A Toast to the West Coast” in Grand Haven at
Wine About Winter Walk 2018!
For the ninth consecutive year, Grand Haven Main Street will celebrate winter with the popular Wine About Winter walk-about. This year’s event will be held on Friday, January 12, 2018, and focuses on wines from America’s West Coast, specifically, varietals grown in the boundless wine regions of California, Oregon, and Washington. This unique occasion offers residents and visitors the opportunity to wander the heated-sidewalks, in the midst of winter, and to experience the warmth and vitality of our Grand Haven Main Street!
Join us at 5 p.m. with an opening Artists’ Awards Ceremony at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum. From there, view artwork from some of the state’s best artists, shop in our charming boutiques, walk safely on our snow-free sidewalks, or ride the complimentary shuttle throughout the Main Street district, all while tasting wine and appetizers. “Last pour” will be at 9:00 p.m.
