Harbor will host the ninth annual Downtown Smithfield Wine Walk, a wine tasting to raise money for its programs, on Friday, November 15, 2019.

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 wines at each location. Walkers will begin at Harbor’s Pizazz, located at 119 North Third Street in Downtown Smithfield.  There, walkers will be given commemorative wine glasses and a wristband to wear, which will allow them to taste wines at other businesses.  Tickets will be available for $20 in advance, or for $25 at the door.  

“The Wine Walk is a wonderful event for Downtown Smithfield, our businesses, and Harbor,” states Sarah Edwards, Executive Director of the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation.  “Since its inception, the Wine Walk has raised more than $25,000 for Harbor to support the incredible work that they do.”
