Dates Announced for 2018 Taste Washington Festival
SEATTLE (August 1) – Coming off its biggest year ever, Taste Washington will be back for another four-day festival March 22-25, 2018. The announcement comes as we raise a glass to Washington State Wine Month, a month-long celebration featuring wine promotions and special offers at participating retailers, hotels, restaurants and tasting rooms across the state.
This past March, the 20th anniversary celebration drew more than 7,000 attendees – a festival record. The Grand Tasting poured over 675 wines, served bites from 65 restaurants – honoring Capital Grille as 2017 Best Bite award – and shucked 9,600 oysters! Planning for 2018 has begun and will include popular events including the Grand Tasting, educational seminars led by industry leaders, the Red and White Party, Taste Washington on the Farm, and the New Vintage. Tickets to the 21st annual Taste Washington will go on sale December 1, 2017 at www.tastewashington.org.
