Paris Texas Wine Fest is back. Join your friends for an evening to Sip, Savor and Shop around downtown Paris, Texas! April 9, 2022, 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.
Paris Main Street and partners present Paris Wine Fest, a ticketed event highlighting Texas Wineries from across the state, local restaurants, food trucks, farms, and local retail shops and galleries in downtown Paris.
Beginning at 5:45 pm, ticket holders can check-in at City Hall, 107 E. Kaufman in downtown Paris to pick up their 2022 swag bags and participant wristband. This year’s swag bags include:
- A 2022 commemorative wine glass.
- Wine glass lanyard.
- Reusable wine bottle tote for purchases.
- Wine bottle stopper.
Event sponsors provide the swag items to all ticket holders. They also receive a map of participating downtown businesses where the wineries and food partners will set up tasting booths.
The event boasts ten different wineries from across Texas. Each winery will have a booth set up inside a business where winery representatives will give attendees a sample of their wine and share information about their vineyards and the types of wine they make. Attendees will also have the option to purchase their favorite wines by glass or bottle.
Each downtown business will host ten different eateries, food trucks, farms, or restaurants from Northeast Texas. A ticket holder can expect a bite-sized sample of gourmet food representative of fantastic menu items found at each participating food establishment. Some menu items will be for sale, depending on location.
Entertainment will be provided for the attendees and featured inside businesses or at various outdoor locations. Tables and chairs will be provided at each site if attendees want to sit and listen.
Event proceeds will help provide the Paris Main Street Building Improvement Grant funding. Through this program, building and business owners may obtain matching grants to improve downtown signage, facades, and other building improvements while keeping the building’s historical integrity. “To date, the Main Street Advisory Board has granted over $65,000 for improvements to historic downtown buildings, in some instances assisting in putting them back in service instead of sitting vacant,” says Cheri Bedford, Main Street Coordinator. “The Building Improvement Grant has had a huge impact toward the goals for revitalization of the downtown”, says board member Kari Daniel.
Only 400 tickets are sold, keeping the event an intimate gathering. Tickets are sold online only and are available on the website. The cost is $40.00, plus a small online fee.
