Cancelled for 2020

Barrels and Bites

Prepare yourself for a decadent evening on The Bricks. At Barrels and Bites, you'll enjoy a beautiful stroll through downtown businesses. At each stop, you'll sample your choice of wine or a spirit and heavy hors d'oeuvres will perfectly pair with your drink of choice. After the stroll, guests will enjoy an after-party like no other under the impressive Downtown Pavilion that includes a silent and live auction.

This is a 21+ event only. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, this event has been postponed until 2021.
