ROGERS PARK — A new street festival coming to Glenwood Avenue is hoping to become a Rogers Park tradition while raising money for local food access programs — the Glenwood Sunday Market Wine Stroll.
Sponsored by sister businesses Rogers Park Social and Rogers Park Provisions, along with the Rogers Park Business Alliance and Glenwood Sunday Market, the tasting will feature samples of more than 60 wines from 10 different vendors and includes an engraved wine glass.
From 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, wine will be served along Glenwood Avenue, west of the Morse Red Line Tracks and just south of Morse Avenue.
The $20 event ($25 day of the event) will see all its proceeds supporting the weekly neighborhood farmers market and its food access programs. In the past, the market has given away more than $12,000 in a single year to customers using LINK who shop there.
Entrance cost covers the wine tasting, but a beer tent and Pierogi Wagon's food truck will also be at the event, which is otherwise free to the public.
