Downtown Corry Business Association Hosts Annual Wine Walk | New

The fourth of Corry Town Center’s first eight Fridays takes place on August 5th with the annual Downtown Corry Business Association Wine Walk. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“The Wine Walk grows in popularity every year,” said DCBA President Wendy Neckers.

Neckers’ adult children come home to Corry to visit, and she has bought tickets for each of them.

“It’s just a great way to spend the evening with friends and family,” she added. “I think everyone who has participated in the past feels the same way. It’s such a good time.

Tickets are required for the event and can be purchased for $25 each in presale. On the day of the event, tickets will be $30 each.

There will be a variety of wineries, distilleries, breweries and a mead represented. Ticket holders can sample offerings from Bear Creek Winery, The Winery at Wilcox, Courtyard Winery, Allegheny Cellars, Pisano Family Wine Cellars, Driftwood Winery, Brokenstraw Winery, John Russell Brewing Company, Chicken Hill Distillery, Country Hammer Moonshine and Ironstone Meadery .

All purchases will be picked up by David Corry representatives and delivered to the pickup location—Deluxe Barber at 47 N. Center St.

“You won’t have to carry your purchases around all evening,” Neckers said. “Everything will be waiting for you at Deluxe Barber, and we really appreciate Matt Richards for allowing us to use his barber shop.”

Sammie Ploss of “Sammie’s Sweets” will be selling alcohol-flavored candies at Sparta Exchange, and Moonshine Chocolates will be at Pipit’s.

Live music will be provided by Phil Gluvna, Diana Evens, Kallie Williams, Denny Wright, Kevin Downey and Brianna Bojewski.

Corry Connections will hold a draw for a Sip & Paint gift card and Morelli’s Jewelry is continuing its “Great Oyster Shucking Shindig” while offering a 1 in 500 chance of picking a real diamond from a bowl.

Downtown restaurants will have specials throughout the evening and free horse and carriage rides will be available.

The event is sponsored by Corry Jamestown Credit Union, Myers Contracting and Northwest Bank.

North and South Center Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic from Clinton Street to South Street from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., but parking areas are accessible from side streets. Ticket holders can pick up their wine glasses and Wine Walk card at the intersection of North Center and Washington streets.
