The Oxford Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 15th annual Wine and Craft Beer Festival from 2:00 – 10:00 pm on Saturday, May 20th in Oxfordâ€™s Uptown Memorial Park (4 N. Main St.). The Oxford Wine and Craft Beer Festival is a three-time winner of Ohio Magazineâ€™s Best Wine Festivals in 2014, 2015, and 2016. Attendees can enjoy a variety of international and domestic wines and craft beers.
Once again the festival will feature an exciting set of local musicians. Scheduled in this year’s lineup for Live Music Performances include:
2-3:45pm: Lisa Biales Trio
4-5:30pm: Bobby Crawford
5:45-7:30pm: Wood n Steel “Revival”
There will be opportunities to browse a wide variety of booths featuring works from local artisans as well as a range of food favorites (see the list here). Proceeds from the festival will support Oxfordâ€™s Chamber of Commerce scholarship fund.
Tickets for the festival will be available online for $25 beginning on Monday, April 10th through Friday, May 19th at 3:00 pm. Tickets can also be purchased before the date of the event at either the Chamber of Commerce office (102 W. High St.) or the Enjoy Oxford office (14 W. Park Place, Suite C). A ticket buys your wristband, five â€œtasting ticketsâ€ (to be used for both wine and beer), and a souvenir wine glass. You can purchase additional tickets at the event for extra wine/beer tastings: $10 for 5 more tastings. (Forgot to get your tickets early? No problem! Day-of tickets at the event will be available for $30.)
Online tickets will be redeemed at the WILL CALL ticket booth on the day of the event.
