A FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR

WINNIPEG WINE FESTIVAL POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2021

Each year, the Winnipeg Wine Festival brings thousands of people together to celebrate and sample wines at various events throughout the city. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current health and safety guidelines, the Wine Festival organizing committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the festival until Fall 2021.

Adding to the difficulty of this decision, is the loss of the much-needed fundraising support the Wine Festival provides to Special Olympics Manitoba. However, the Winnipeg Wine Festival, Special Olympics Manitoba, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries and the Wines of Argentina all agree their top priority is the health and safety of all volunteers, festival attendees, stakeholders and partners.

Refunds will be provided for tickets purchased for the May 2020 Festival. Starting June 18, 2020 ticket holders who purchased through the online ticketing system will receive an automatic refund with credits received within 10 business days. Tickets purchased at a Manitoba Liquor Mart will be refunded in-store via the method paid. If there is no receipt, the tickets must be presented and the refund will be processed via debit or cash only.

Since early April, all Special Olympics sports and recreation programming as well as all fundraising events have been suspended. In view of these challenging times, ticket holders are encouraged to consider donating their ticket refund directly to Special O to help support the programs that are so vitally important to the 2,000 athletes they serve.

While the public tasting is postponed to 2021, plans are underway

for new and exciting ways to bring the Wine Fest community together

over the coming months and to ensure fundraising efforts are not put

on hold completely. Visit  Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for

up-to-date information, event announcements and ways

to be involved.

Thank you.
