MOSES LAKE — Downtown businesses and Washington wines, a little art and a little music, will be on the menu for the annual Sip & Stroll from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon in Moses Lake.
Twelve downtown businesses will host 12 wineries that will have tasting samples for interested oenophiles. And if an afternoon of wine tasting isn’t enough, there’s an after-party at 5 p.m. at Michael’s Market & Bistro.
Michael’s Bistro is one of the participants. Others include the Red Door Cafe, O2 Yoga Studio, Settler’s County Market, Second Time Silver and Stella & Me, C. Michelle’s Studio of Hair Design, Basalt Collective art gallery, Roost home decor studio, Sue’s Gift Boutique, Skaug Brothers Carpet One, Miller’s Fine Jewelry and CPR Cell Phone Repair.
Each winery will bring at least two wines for strollers to try. Participants include Cascade Cellars and Camas Cove Cellars, Moses Lake; Beaumont Cellars, Jones of Washington and Chris Daniel Winery, Quincy; Winchester Estates, Royal City; Burke Vineyard, Royal City; La Paz Creek Cellars, Maryhill Cellars, Goldendale; Ceili Winery, Kennewick; Four Lakes Winery, Manson and Milbrandt Vineyards, Prosser.
Musicians will be playing at some of the venues, and artists have been invited to display their works. Musicians signed up to play include Jeff Heimark, Nick Garcia and the father-and-son duo of Nick and Nathan Fisher.
Sip & Stroll is sponsored by the Moses Lake Business Association, and MLBA director Brandon Nicholas said it’s an evolution from the organization’s previous Art & Wine Walk event.
Tickets are $25 per person and $45 per couple until Saturday. On Saturday tickets will be $30 per person or $50 per couple. Participants receive a wine glass and 10 tickets, Nicholas said. A limited number of event tickets are available.
Event tickets can be picked up Saturday at the Smith Martin Building and at Michael’s Bistro.
