Tickets are going fast for Junior Auxiliary’s Sip and Saveur: Tasting and Art Showcase set to kick off next Saturday, April 29, from 5 to 9 p.m.
“There are a limited number of commemorative glasses available,” said Junior Auxiliary member Emily Stefanick, of the stemless wine glasses given to patrons who attend the event. “They may not be available the night of the event. Tickets are selling fast.”
In its third year, the event is a showcase for local artists, local caterers, and businesses on Main Street. It also provides attendees the chance to sample wine and hors d’oeuvres while admiring the work of some of the area’s finest artisans at participating businesses. This is an adult-only event, and age will be verified at registration.
Currently, 19 businesses are participating: Magness Library, TOPZ, Ashely’s Attic, Agee Owens and Cooper, Citizens Tri-County Bank, Highland Rim, Hoover and Son Insurance, Collins River BBQ, Redstone Holistic, Ross and Co., Trendy Trunk, Ryan J. Moore Attorney, The Weathered Arrow, The Twisted Yogis, Dodie’s Painting Studio, The Heritage Museum, and Pirtle and Little.
“Also, the owners of TOPZ will be opening their new eatery next door to their current location on that weekend, and that location will be participating as well,” said Stefanick. “The Warren County Chamber of Commerce will be holding the young artists of Warren County High School again this year.”
The event has several returning artists, including Erika Roberts, Linda Dunlap, Ramona Mathis, Stephanie Fish, Brett Warren and Peggy Adcock. Joining for the first time are Gwen Copeland, Duane Sherrill, Sam Young, Trey Kirby, Nestor Bartolomei, Maggie Sunsera, Jenny Owens and Jay Walker.
Musical entertainment will be provided by The Lund McVey Group. Jason McVey is a McMinnville native and Warren County music teacher. He feels right at home on the square. This marks the third event for the group.
