SAVE THE DATE: Monrovia Wine Walk | August 26, 2017

Monrovia’s very first Wine Walk event is scheduled to take place on August 26, 2107, in Old Town!  Developed by the City in partnership with the Monrovia Old Town Advisory Board, the Wine Walk event is intended to encourage customers to visit all businesses in Old Town, and especially our retail and service related businesses.

Wine Walk participants will be invited to stroll through Old Town, enter businesses, and sample a variety of wine, while simultaneously exploring each business and its offerings.  There will also be acoustic entertainment playing on each block of Old Town to enhance a festive atmosphere during the event. 


Additional information regarding the event will be developed and distributed in the coming months, for now, however, we wanted to encourage everyone to hold the date for an event where participants will be able to… Sip, Shop, Support…Monrovia’s Wine Walk!
