Downtown Issaquah Wine Art Walk series continues

The next Wine Art Walk will be April 7.

The Downtown Issaquah Association will continue its Downtown Issaquah Wine & Art Walk series on April 7. The association is partnering with artEast Art Center this year to combine wine with fine art. This event is a fun and lively first Saturday evening event that brings community together.

Attendees can enjoy live music, art, art demonstrations, snacks and local boutique wines poured in various tasting locations along Front Street. This is a free event and all ages welcome (wine tasting requires ticket and age verification). Front Street shops and restaurants are open to the general public.

This month, Wine & Art Walk celebrates Italian heritage through musical performance, including The Rigatones, a lively and engaging ‘strolling’ duo and the Andrea Algieri Duo of Portland who blends expressive Italian lyrics with hook-laden melodies. Other performances include the Cool School Jazz with more performances to come.

Wineries include: Don Carlo Vineyard, Barrel Springs, Long Cellars, Masquerade, Wilridge and Sol Stone, Love that Red, Estrin Estates, Nardone and Capri Cellars. Beer tasting by Rogue Brewery.

Bring your own glass.

The association’s mission is to promote and enhance the vitality of historic Downtown Issaquah through programs and events that celebrate our unique culture.

Tickets are available at www.downtownissaquah.com/wine-walk, $25 in advance or $30 at the event. This includes 10 one ounce drink tokens.
