Downtown Bellingham Partnership Announces 2022 Holiday Wine Walk Details

The Downtown Bellingham Partnership will host the annual Holiday Wine Walk event Friday, November 11 from 5:00 – 8:30 PM. Tickets will be released for sale the week of October 10 for this popular downtown celebration. The Holiday Wine Walk draws upwards of 600 people to taste wine and welcome in the holiday shopping season at 15 stores and boutiques in the downtown core.

“We’re excited to bring back Holiday Wine Walk,” Lindsey Payne Johnstone, Program Director for the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, said. “This event is such a fun way to check out unique gift ideas and get some of that shopping done early, while enjoying delicious wine with friends.”

Just like past Wine Walks, attendees will taste a variety of wines from local and regional wineries on a self-guided sipping tour of downtown’s anchors stores and new businesses.

Tickets start at $40 for general entry which includes 10 tasting tickets, a commemorative tasting cup, an event guide, and a Greenhouse Home + Life tote bag. In addition to the general tickets, limited $60 VIP tickets include early check-in, an exclusive reception at Locus with a complimentary glass of wine and charcuterie pairing, and three additional tasting tickets. Guests must be 21+ and are encouraged to purchase tickets on DPB’s website in advance as only 550 total tickets are available. Proceeds from ticket sales support the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, a non-profit championing the health and vitality of downtown Bellingham through the promotion of commerce, culture, and celebration.

Greenhouse Home + Life is 2022’s Holiday Wine Walk title sponsor. Since 1972, Greenhouse has been a shopping destination on the corner of Holly and Cornwall. More recently, people may know them from HGTV’s Unsellable Houses where Greenhouse provides furniture and décor to stage homes for sale. Members of the public are encouraged to follow Greenhouse’s Facebook and Instagram profiles for a chance to win free Wine Walk tickets. Details of the giveaway will be announced soon.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
