Details and Sponsorship Opportunities
Bona Fide Bellevue is excited to announce the return of Bellevue’s Art & Wine Crawl! On Saturday, September 25th, the fun begins again. The event begins at 6:00pm and will include approximately 14 wine tasting stops located along Bellevue’s Lincoln Avenue business district. We will also be including an artist market of local vendors. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to sample an assortment of wines, browse and purchase art, and learn more about our valued businesses.
Event: Saturday, September 25, 2021
Time: 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Event Details: Attendees will check in at the John A. Hermann Jr. Memorial Art Museum. All attendees participating in sampling will have their IDs verified, sign a waiver of liability, and will receive a wristband which will identify them to participating stops. Attendees will receive an event glass which will be used to sample wine at stops along the crawl.
Street Closure: The streets will be closed from Balph to Jackson from 5:00PM – 11:00 PM. Bellevue Borough will connect with the Port Authority which will be responsible for rerouting the buses during this closure.
Art: Local and regional vendors will be set up on Lincoln Avenue (between Balph and Jackson) and at participating stops along the wine crawl. Participating event stops are encouraged to incorporate art into their event experience.
Wine: All stops will be provided with a case of wine. A 750ml bottle of wine contains about 25 oz. of wine. All businesses commit to a 1-ounce pour per guest. Attendees will only be served once. At this pour amount, your case will serve approximately 300 people. Visibly intoxicated attendees should not be served. Wineries reserve the right to meet with all volunteers who pour on behalf of their business prior to the crawl. We encourage stops which don’t generally serve food to have water and a snack that pairs well with your wine available to attendees.
