Poverty Bay Wine Festival
March 6, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - March 7, 2015 @ 9:00 pm$35
DES MOINES, Wash. — The Rotary Club of Des Moines presents the 11th annual Poverty Bay Wine Festival on Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7 at the Des Moines Beach Park.
More than 20 Washington wineries will help the Poverty Bay Wine Festival celebrate its return to the original location — the newly remodeled historic Des Moines Beach Park Auditorium. Friday’s activities span five hours (5-10 p.m.), but Saturday begins at noon and concludes at 9 p.m.
Participating wineries include AntoLin, Barrage, Bunchgrass, Castillo de Felicana, Convergence Zone, Coyote Canyon, Davenport, Five Star Cellars, Genoa, Knipprath, Kontos, Laurelhurst, Martinez and Martinez, Page Cellars, Rolling Bay, Skylite, SuLei, Waving Tree and William Church
There will be entertainers and strolling musicians, but this year’s event will be focused on wine with competition, a wine toss and a more relaxed atmosphere for meeting and learning from some of the best winemakers around.
As always, 100 percent of the net revenues help fund the charitable activities of the Des Moines Rotary Club, including regional food banks. Free parking and a free shuttle service will run from the Des Moines Marina to the wine festival both days.
Wine festival tickets cost $35, which includes 10 tasting tokens (tastings range from 1–3 tokens). Additional tasting tokens available for $1. Designated driver tickets can be purchased for $15 at the door.
Tickets are available online and at B&E Meats, Auntie Irene’s, Des Moines Drugs, Key Bank (Des Moines branch), Normandy Park Market and the Print Place.
