Nev. –Dust off that 80s windbreaker and throw on those neon snow pants because the Reno Riverwalk District is kicking off 2022 with a throwback theme for this months Reno Wine Walk, to be held on Saturday, January 15, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
As a special addition to this month’s wine walk the Riverwalk District will be hosting an Instagram selfie contest. Hundreds of locals and tourists are expected to attend this month’s event in 80s-90s inspired snow fashions.
Each month portions of the proceeds for the Reno Wine Walk benefit local small businesses and the districts beautification program. Funds from the program support river preservation, signage replacements, and art installations as well as provide a small rebate back to the participating non-profits and small business each month.
The Wine Walk is a monthly event held on the third Saturday where you purchase a decorative wine glass for a $30 wine-tasting fee. With wine glass in hand and a valid photo ID, guests receive an ID bracelet, which allows them to sample wine at any of the twenty-plus participating merchant locations. Many of the businesses hand paint each individual wine glass which attendees get to take home. At the end of the event attendees enter to win more than $700 in gift cards from all the participating merchants during a 5 p.m. raffle.
