The Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation will host its eighth Downtown Smithfield Wine Walk, a wine tasting to raise money for Harbor and the programs Harbor supports, on Friday, April 21, 2017.
The Wine Walk will take place from 5:00-9:00 p.m., when walkers will visit participating businesses in the downtown district to sample a different wine at each of the twenty participating businesses. Walkers will begin at Harbor’s Pizazz, located at 119 North Third Street in Downtown Smithfield, where tickets will be available for $20 per person. There, walkers will be given commemorative wine glasses and a wristband to wear, which will allow them to taste wines at other businesses. Participants may reserve their tickets at Pizazz beginning Monday, April 17, but each participant will still need to present his or her ID at Pizazz prior to beginning the Wine Walk to claim their wine glass and wristband.
Businesses participating in the April 2017 Downtown Smithfield Wine Walk include 105 S. Third Street, Ava Gardner Museum, Dazzle Me Accessories, Evans Jewelers, Flex Affect, Grapes & Grounds, Hank’s Florist, Johnston County Heritage Center, LadyBug Designers, Little Brown Jug, Lovely Lady, MedicalTraining.me, Memory Lane Frame Studio, Pizazz, Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield, Simple Twist, Simple Twist Tap Room, Simply Bliss Studio, SoDoSoPa, and We Ship It.
“The Downtown Smithfield Wine Walk is a wonderful event for Downtown Smithfield and our businesses,” states Sarah Edwards, Executive Director of the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation. “Its popularity has only continued to increase, with more than $15,000 raised for Harbor in the past six years.”
