What’s On Tap

Who’s ready for a pre-Thanksgiving edition of Wine Down Downtown? WE ARE! Turn off the news and get downtown! No, seriously… there’s nothing good on the news. Come “wine” down downtown with us!
Friday, November 20 from 5:00 — 8:00 p.m.
First thing’s first, if you plan on sampling wines, you need a ticket!  Wine tumblers purchased from Laurel Main Street (LMS) serve as your entry ticket. Wine will not be poured into any other container. Click here to save a little time at the event and purchase your tickets online. Tumblers purchased online will be available for pick up at the LMS tent, on the corner of Magnolia St. and Central Ave., beginning at 5:00 p.m. If you are unable to purchase your tumbler in advance, we ask that you bring exact change. In an effort to minimize interactions, we will not have change on-site. If you do not have exact change, we ask that you consider donating your payment overage to Laurel Main Street. Our volunteers will still check IDs for proof of age, so please have your ID ready to show.

Retailers will offer wine tastings, equivalent to about a 2 oz. pour. Each store serving wine will have a different type for you to taste. There are also stores that will be open for extended shopping hours, but will serve non-alcoholic beverages instead. Take a look at the map and plan your evening in The City Beautiful!
There will be hand sanitizer available at the LMS tent as well as hand sanitizing stations throughout downtown. Our retailers have been encouraged to host sidewalk sales and pour wine tastings outside to encourage social distancing and minimize crowds in stores.
All are welcome downtown! If you do not drink wine, we hope you will still #getdowntown and enjoy an evening of live music and shopping with the merchants of Laurel Main Street!
