Salina Downtown, Inc. is excited to host its Annual SaWINEa Wine Walk this Saturday, Oct. 21, featuring local Kansas wineries and breweries.

From 4:00-8:00 p.m., The SaWINEa Downtown Wine Walk invites you to explore the many flavors of five Kansas wineries (and three local breweries) as you experience the friendly ambience that our downtown boutiques and shops have to offer.

The Blades will grace us with their musical talent at Campbell Plaza.

April Rickman, event planner for Salina Downtown Inc. said she is excited to reintroduce this event to the Salina community. 

“I am elated to be able to continue to give new life to this event for Salina Downtown. We (Salina Downtown Inc.) are committed to creating and bringing unique, engaging, and fun programming to Downtown Salina,” Rickman said. 

There will be two levels of ticket.

VIP tickets will be $60 and come with a commemorative stainless steel wine tumbler, a souvenir wine cork stopper, a bottle opener, early entry to the walk, as well as other perks including a VIP only happy hour at Prickly Pear with a complementary drink and a special drink at The Cellar Wine & Whiskey Bar, which is NEW in downtown since the 2022 Wine Walk.

General Admission tickets will be $35 and will come with a wine tasting cup. A limited number of tickets are available. Tickets are sold online at https://www.salinadowntown.org/events-info

Each participant will plan their downtown adventure, stopping at participating downtown businesses while tasting a “sampling” of Kansas wines and brews.

There will also be mocktail and snack stops posted along the route to cleanse your palate!
