This Saturday, Feb. 23, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., the annual Oakhurst Wine Crawl will be serving up pours of wine for the 18th year in a row.
The event is 21 and up, where attendees will “get to know over 30 local businesses pouring tastes of almost 100 different wines from around the world,” and go home with a souvenir glass, according to a recent press release.
The Oakhurst Wine Crawl will be held in the Oakhurst neighborhoods, hence the name, highlighting businesses from the area.
Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door, and funds from the event will go to Oakhurst’s Annual Porchfest and Jazz Nights. Those planning on attending can buy tickets now online by clicking here or at the Oakhurst Market.
While Porchfest is a free event to attend, there are still costs associated with it organizer Scott Doyon said.
“We do think of Porchfest as a gift to and from the neighborhood each year — from the bands donating their talents to our hosts volunteering their homes to block captains stepping up to keep an eye on everything — but sadly, these amazing contributions still don’t release us from the larger obligations and infrastructure of running an event of our size,” Doyon said. “Like all larger events in Decatur, we pay thousands of dollars each year for both police officers and porta-johns, and of course have the usual hard costs associated with promo posters, signage, printed programs, insurance, etc. as well.”
“The Decatur Arts Alliance has been our nonprofit partner from the start, allowing us to cover these costs via fundraising and grants such as the support we receive from the Wine Crawl.”
