This is the first ever Downtown Champaign Wine Walk. We are excited to bring this new event to downtown Champaign, coinciding with Friday Night Live and the Downtown Festival District. The event will take ticketed guests age 21+ into retail shopping establishments to taste samples of wine. It’s timely because in the era of Amazon and online retailers, it’s important to support locally owned businesses, strengthening business in our local community.
1: First ever Downtown Champaign Wine Walk – liquor code was amended in April to allow us to organize this event, with CCP applying for the temporary liquor license covering our member retail businesses.
2: Must purchase tickets in advance; space is limited. Tickets $20 through July 31. We expect to sell out of tickets for this event.
3: Enjoy the lively atmosphere of Downtown Champaign on a Friday evening. Live music starts at 6pm as you sip, shop and stroll through downtown.
4: Proceeds of the event support the Champaign Center Partnership, the local nonprofit business association serving Downtown, Midtown and Campustown. Our mission is to foster a vibrant, inviting and active Champaign core by strengthening business and building community.
