Join us Friday, July 10th for the fifth annual Palmer Wine Walk! The Wine Walk is a fundraiser for the Palmer Museum of History and Art, and we are so happy to be able to host this summer! In order to ensure the safety of all our participants, volunteers, and partner businesses, we will be altering our format a little this year!
This year, we will be doing three different start times - 4:30 pm, 6:00 pm, and 7:30 pm. We will have 100 tickets available per start time, so make sure you and your friends get the same time slot!
The Palmer Wine Walk will be held on July 10th. Check in on the lawn at Alaska Picker at your ticket’s start time, and pick up your tasting bracelet, custom hand painted wine glass, and wine yoke. Your ticket gets you eight 2 oz pours of wine, and we have eight different wines, each served at a different downtown partner business. To help with distancing, you will be sorted into one of eight groups at the start (Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, etc), each with a different first stop. Once your start time begins, head to your first stop, and enjoy wine, shopping, snacks and walking in beautiful downtown Palmer. We will be doing a 50/50 drawing at each start, make sure to get your ticket for the chance to win some cash for your evening of fun! Food trucks will be lined up at the start, and light snacks will be provided at each stop.
Tickets this year are $60, and will go on sale to Museum Members on June 15th. Museum members get a discounted price of $50 per ticket, valid for up to four tickets. Tickets will go on sale to nonmembers on Monday, June 22nd. Tickets will be available for purchase over the phone (907-746-7668), and in person at the museum.
HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES
We at the Palmer Museum are committed to the safety of our attendees, volunteers, business partners, and staff, and with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be taking a couple extra health measures.
FACE COVERINGS - Please bring a festive face covering with you, especially to check in! Hoping to see many summer colors reflected in our attendees! You may of course remove your face covering to take a drink (unless you have a fancy design that transcends this need, in which case, you could be sitting on a gold mine).
OCCUPANCY - We will have museum volunteers as greeters at the doors to each stop, keeping track of how many attendees are inside at once. Currently, state health mandates do not allow for more than 50% of maximum occupancy in a business, counting staff and volunteers. If a stop is full, you may be asked to wait and enjoy the beautiful July weather until another party leaves.
DISTANCING - Please attempt to keep at least 6 feet between yourself and attendees from different households.
EVOLVING SITUATION - We have been communicating with AMCO and the State Health Department about this event, and will continue to monitor for changes. We at the Palmer Museum remain committed to the safety of our community, and we may require additional safety precautions if the state of the pandemic shifts. Please keep an eye on our facebook page and website for updates. Thank you for your understanding!
