Thursday, July 29th, 2021
5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Join us for an evening of wine and fun! We will pair 10 Vancouver Island wineries with 10 local businesses in beautiful downtown Parksville. Our unique experience will allow you to Sip, Stroll, and Shop the night away!


During the Wine Walk, Parksville’s downtown businesses become “tasting rooms” where attendees may sample different Wines, Spirits, Beers and Ciders. Stroll from business to business exploring what downtown has to offer and shop while you sip from your souvenir glass.


Tickets are $68 each in advance or $80 on the day of the event. (This event will sell out quickly so it’s unlikely there will be any day of sales.) Tickets at www.WineWalks.ca and EventBrite


Taste all the Wine, Spirit, Beer or Cider samples from the numerous options available at different businesses throughout Downtown Parksville. You're sure to find something you Love!


Taste Wine, Spirits, Beer or Cider


Attendees will taste wine through 10 different ‘wineries’. Start at the Parksville McMillan Arts Centre to pick up your commemorative 12oz non-breakable stemless wine glass, wristband, event map and 10 tasting tickets then walk from business to business exploring downtown and chatting with wine makers, distillers, brewers and business owners. Each location will feature one winery.


Tickets will include a Charcuterie Board in-a-box that you will pick up at the store that will be designated as your first tasting location.


(Additional tasting tickets will be available for purchase for $3/ticket at two locations during the Wine Walk. Only ticket-holding attendees with a wristband can purchase additional tasting tickets).


Discover Downtown Parksville From urban sophisticated to funky fantastic, shopping in Parksville Downtown presents a warm and welcoming mix of fashionable clothing boutiques, one-of-a-kind gift shops and specialty stores that will keep you intrigued all evening. There's so much to explore!


When and Where to Check-in
