Art & Wine Walk is Aug. 17

Join us for the seventh season of the annual summer Art & Wine Walk, co-sponsored by the Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau (GGFCVB) and the North Valley Arts Council (NoVAC).

This annual adult event is held in the downtown areas of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. Stop by either of our starting locations between 1 and 4:30 p.m. to purchase your map for $15, cash or check only. The map lists all the participating downtown businesses which are hosting a regional or local artist. Some businesses may even provide a snack or have a performing artist located outside.

At 5 p.m. bring your map to the Wrap Up Party, held at the Empire Arts Center, and turn it in to be eligible for one of the many prize bags given away. There will also be appetizers provided by the GGFCVB.

The two starting locations are the GuestHouse TownHouse hotel in Grand Forks and the Blue Moose Bar & Grill in East Grand Forks. Remaining dates for 2013 are Aug. 17, Sept. 21, and Oct. 19.
