May 5 // Various Locations in Downtown Sioux Falls // 5 – 8 p.m.
Gather your friends or family, lace up your walking shoes, and make your way downtown to enjoy the May Art & Wine Walk.
“The Art & Wine Walk is a browsy event where downtown shops serve up wine and host a local artist,” said Tenley Schwartz, marketing director for Downtown Sioux Falls.
The semi-annual event is open to everyone, says Schwartz, but those who would like to participate in the wine tasting must be 21 and up.
Wine punch cards are available for purchase at the DTSF Punch Card Station located in front of the Shriver Square building for $25 to cover 10 wine samples. Single glasses of wine are available for purchase for $5 at participating locations.
Schwartz adds that each participating location will offer two wine options: a white and a red.
Participating Locations & Artists:
Brosia Bowl // Misty Green
Intoxibakes // Laura Olson
Plum’s Cooking Company // Lizzie Stewart
Hotel on Phillips // Jesse Christen Band
Mint + Basil // Caitlin Moen
Simply Perfect // Alex Malfero
While the event is well known for offering a wide variety of wine samples, it’s the perfect opportunity to experience the work of 34 local artists.
“It’s a great excuse to get together with friends or schedule a date night,” said Schwartz. “It’s also the perfect time to peek into new-to-you stores and get a great view of how many talented local artists we’ve got in Sioux Falls.”
Those who attend have the opportunity to view the art of various mediums from painting, photography, sculpture, encaustic, fiber art, live music, and more.
There is an opportunity to buy the artist’s work, but you can continue the conversation by discussing the work with the artists.
“My favorite part is getting together with friends and chatting as we browse.” -Tenley Schwartz
Before your walk, Schwartz advises that attendees grab an event map. “These list out every location, their partnered artist, and tasting notes for both wine options,” she adds.
See the work of tremendous artists including S.D. Aerial & Arts (aerial silks), The Hegg Brothers (live music), Tim Davidson and Stephanie Arne (wildlife artist and conservationists), Walter Portz (photography), and many more.
Stop in to hear the acoustic sound of Landon Weis at Envive Chiropractic, join the duo Audrianna and Greyson Schulz at Papa Woody’s, or listen to the mother/son duo Jenn and Dawson Lee at Lauriebelles.
The Art & Wine Walk is the perfect event for those looking for something new to experience, says Schwartz.
She added, “It’s the perfect event for some low-key fun with your people.”
