Our "Green Initiative" For 2021

We are proud to continue our efforts to reduce the impact this event has on our environment.

Each ticket holder will receive a reusable spork this year, and sip stop ticket holders will also receive a reusable tasting cup. All restaurants and sip stop locations will be provided with recyclable, compostable service ware and encouraged not to use Styrofoam or plastic. We are also working with a local program on food recovery so that nothing goes to waste at the end of the night.
