The Columbus Summer Wine Festival, takes place on Saturday, August 25 at the Columbus Commons. The event, designed to showcase Ohio wines, will benefit the children’s’ charity CD102.5 for the Kids.
The day-long celebration will also feature artisan exhibits, food trucks, specialty food items, and live musical entertainment. The event promises to provide a little bit of something for everyone in a location that is festival friendly.
“CD102.5 for the Kids is happy to be partnering with Mike [Gallicchio] and MGNow. Not only will
the event assist in supporting a fantastic cause right here in central Ohio, but it will help support the Ohio wine industry by providing a new opportunity to feature the state’s grape industry,” stated Randy Malloy, chief executive officer of WWCD 102.5.
The Columbus Commons was chosen as the site for the inaugural event due to its location and
ease of access for guests. “Having hosted a variety of events all over the city, we [Randy Malloy and Mike Gallicchio] felt The Columbus Commons is the best site for the festival. It offers plenty of parking, a large green space, an amphitheater for entertainment, and it’s within walking distance to several residential areas as well as hotels,” said Mike Gallicchio, president of MGNow.
Tickets for the event go on sale June 1st. Admission starts at $25 and will include samplings,
entertainment, and access to the festival grounds. Festival hours are Noon-10 PM. Guests must
be 21 and over to participate in the samplings.
