Chilliwack Art of Wine Festival pouring proceeds back in to community

A cornucopia of good things will come together at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on May 10, including award-winning wine and a silent auction.

The best part? It’s all in support of the local arts and craft programs offered through the Cultural Centre.

The first-ever Art of Wine Festival will feature more than 50 wines from two dozen B.C. wineries, pouring a taste of award-winning vintages and new spring releases. With summer weather just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to taste-test a new crop of white and seasonal wines.

After sampling the spread of wine, patrons will have an opportunity to bid on their favourites as part of the silent auction, which also includes a variety of other items donated by the community.

All in all, the Art of Wine Festival serves as a reminder that you don’t have to travel far from home to find the good things in life. With the proceeds pouring directly back into community programming, enjoying a local wine is the perfect way to honour B.C. culture and support it at the same time.

• Tickets are $45 and can be purchased at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre box office. For more information, call 604-391-7469, or visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca. You can also drop by in person at 9201 Corbould St.
