After Chicago’s brutally cold winter, spring’s warm breezes will be a welcome relief when the glorious grape, along with smooth tunes, artisans and tasty edibles, set the stage for this 5th annual wine happening. Lincoln Park Wine Fest will again transform the tranquil two-acre Jonquil Park into an open-air market featuring wine and food pavilions. The highlight is ticketed wine tastings where scores of varietals will be showcased.
Beyond samplings, wine connoisseurs will also appreciate hearing the expertise of brand ambassadors and sommeliers. And enhancing the fest will be a mellow live music lineup, food-wine pairings, artisans, and the products/services of wine-related vendors.
Each year over 90 varieties of wines are available for tasting. Tickets include 12 Tastings with each purchase. Friday night's session will only focus on rosé and sparkling wines.
Guests can choose to purchase tickets for the following sessions:
Friday, May 17 from 6:00PM to 10:00PM (featuring sparkling wines, rose and unique reds)
Saturday, May 18 from 12:00PM - 4:00PM
Saturday, May 18 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM
Sunday, May 19 from 12:00PM to 4:00PM
Lincoln Park Wine Fest will take place rain or shine.
