COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Uptown Columbus is excited to announce the return of the popular Uptown Beer & Wine Festival next month.

The festival will offer guests the chance to taste over 100 different craft beers and wines. There will be a new addition to the festival this year, seltzer samples.

The event will be held at Golden Park on June 12 and includes admission into opening weekend of the Chatt-A-Hoots baseball game immediately following the festival.

“We’ve done this event for over a decade as a way to introduce people to craft beers but also into the wine world and some of the other amenities that are in uptown,” said Ed Wolverton, President of Uptown Columbus. “So as we are now coming out of the pandemic, more people are getting vaccinated. We thought that this may be a good opportunity for us to bring the festival back.”

Uptown Columbus is looking for volunteers for the event. Volunteers will be selling t-shirts, checking IDs and distributing beer and wine. Volunteers must be 21 or older. All volunteers will walk away with a free event t-shirt, commemorative glass, and entry into the Chatt-a-Hoots opening weekend baseball game! To sign up, click here.

COVID-19 social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.
