The 14th Annual Taste of Carolina Wine Fest
hosted by the greensboro jaycees
The Greensboro Junior Chamber is proud to host its 14th Annual Taste of Carolina Wine Festival at a new location, the Greensboro Coliseum's White Oak Amphitheater Saturday, October 1, 2016. The festival will run from noon until 6:00 pm.
Over the past 13 years, this event has been held at the Triad Farmers Market. But coming off of a record attendance of more than 3,200 guests, and in conjunction with community efforts to revitalize downtown Greensboro, the TCWF Committee chose the new location as a way to increase guest capacity, connect with downtown and to provide a more safe and dynamic festival atmosphere.
The Greensboro Junior Chamber takes great pride in its ongoing efforts of community contribution. In support of Greater Greensboro, we have made the decision to donate 30% of the proceeds to the local non-profit chapters of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and March of Dimes. Indeed, this will be the first donative contribution in the event's 14-year history.
In addition to the many fine wineries pouring, the move to the amphitheater will also welcome some awesome musical guests to enhance the atmosphere. We will be revealing those acts within the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Through the partnership with the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, all tickets may be purchased and accessed through Ticketmaster by simply clicking the button below. We look forward to having you!
