Brandenburg Telecom, Swope Family of Dealerships, T-Mobile, and California Closets.
“This event has grown exponentially over the last five years,” said Sarah Vaugh, City of E-town
Events Program Manager. “This is such a fun night and offers something very different than the
rest of the City’s events throughout the year. Live music, food, wine, bourbon, beer, and a great
night to be in Etown, all for only $20.”
Patrons may purchase a full ticket for $20 pre-sale or $25 at the gate. Pre-sales will close down
on September 17th at noon. Full tickets include eight tasting tickets and a wine glass. There will

www.etownevents.com. The event is 5:00p-10:00p at Freeman Lake Park near the Ernie
Williams Pavilion and field. Patrons are asked to bring their own chairs or blankets.
“Having this festival in our community is one of the many things that make E-town so unique,”
said Janna Clark, E-town Tourism Executive Director. “The setting at the lake is perfect and
there is something for everyone at this event.”
There will be Kentucky wineries offering tastings and selling by the glass and bottle. Wineries
included are: Water’s Edge, Etown’s only winery, Purple Toad, Forest Edge, McIntyre’s,
Bluegrass, Traveler’s Cellar, and 1922 House. There will also be wines from California and
