Chetek’s next wine walk is Tuesday through Thursday, June 15–17.
Like the last event, businesses will offer wine samples over several days, but the gathering at Main Street Park to draw names of prize winners will return on Thursday, June 17, at 7:15 p.m.
Three hundred custom, stemless wine glasses have been hand painted for the event. They feature a bee and the words, “Bee Happy.” For $20, attendees get a wine glass, a carrying bag and a coupon book for local businesses (while supplies last).
“Looking forward to another great event. There are a lot of unique shops with a lot unique items. It’s always a fun time,” said Jennifer Blatz, event organizer for the Chetek Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event.
Proceeds from the event will go toward the Chetek Liberty Fest fireworks show on July 4, which is put on by the chamber.
For every $10 spent at participating retail businesses, wine walkers will get a ticket entered into the prize drawings.
The grand prize this year is a Weber grill and accessories, valued at $500, sponsored by Pillar Construction. Names will be drawn for the winners of three gift bags. Each gift bag have apparel, gift certificates, decor, candy, lotions soaps and other items donated by local businesses and restaurants. The bags are valued at $250 and can be seen at Candy Corner and Creations during the wine walk.
Winners do not need to be present to win. The gift bags will be held at The Chetek Alert office for the winners to pick up.
