The 30A Wine Festival is one of the most stylish and chic wine & culinary events on the gulf coast.... due to the breathtaking location at Alys Beach. This year marks the fifth year of this exciting event which benefits Children's Volunteer Health Network, a nonprofit dedicated to providing access to health services for children in Walton and Okaloosa counties. I have been involved with CVHN for several years and these people and children hold a special place in my heart.
The weekend festivities are set for March 11 - 13th.
Kick off the weekend at the Bourbon, Beer & Butts on Friday, March 11th, from 6:00-9:00 pm at Kelly Green. Dress code is casual "southern" chic. These looks are perfect to sip a cocktail, eat some awesome BBQ and enjoy the live music from Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars.
Swirl, sip and learn from some of the countries best vintners on Saturday from 1:00-3:30pm at Fonville Park. Then, from 3:30-7:00 join everyone for a wine walkabout at the North Sea Garden Walk at Alys Beach for the Grand Tasting.
Be sure to pick up your stylish Swell bottles to hydrate, hydrate hydrate!!!
Finally, Rose and Croquet is a highlight of the 30A Wine Festival on Sunday 11:30-3:30 pm at Kelly Green at Alys Beach. You must wear your traditional croquet whites for this tournament! Enjoy a boozy brunch and biscuit bar prior to the match, complete with elegant Rosés and Bloody Mary bar. This is one of my favorite events during this festival....Super chic!
I encourage you to attend the 30A Wine Festival at Alys Beach this year and experience one of the most stylish and unique wine festivals along our gulf coast, while supporting Children's Volunteer Health Network and helping our local community and its uninsured and underinsured children.
