Walla Walla Wine Weekend

Fri.–Sat. April 26–27, 2019

Get ready to paint the town purple! Gather with fellow Huskies for food, fun and friendship while we explore wineries and tasting rooms that have a UW connection.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening with a wine reception in the historic Gesa Power House Theatre. On Saturday, enjoy a casual wine tour featuring tasting rooms that are owned, founded or managed by Husky alumni.

Join the pack for both events, or just pick one. Tickets are $20 for each event, $15 for UWAA members (must be 21 and older, please bring valid ID to ensure entrance to each event).
