Happy Hour

Wine Tasting Fundraiser | June 3, 2017 6:30 pm

The Tuscarawas Philharmonic is hosting a wine tasting fundraiser the evening of June 3rd at 6:30 pm, just prior to our Music and Dance concert. Not only is this a wine tasting event, but we are also allowing each attendee to vote for a winery based on which wine they liked best. Right before the end of the performance, we will announce which winery received the most votes, and they will be crowned as our "Patrons' Choice Award" winner.


Only concert attendees will be permitted to participate in the tasting. Upon arrival, each attendee can purchase a custom-etched "Tuscarawas Philharmonic" wine glass containing a voting ballot and tickets for sampling the wines. Each attendee may sample one wine from each winery, and then place their vote on the provided ballot. Attendees are also welcome to purchase wine by the glass for on-premises consumption, or by the bottle to be enjoyed at home.

Info for Wineries

Wineries may bring as many wine varieties as they wish, bearing in mind that attendees will only be able to sample one wine (of their choosing) per winery. We will wrap up the tasting just prior to the performance, and ballots will be collected and tallied. The Patrons' Choice winner will have their wine carried at the Kent State Tusc. Performing Arts Center for each performance during the Philharmonic's 2017-2018 season. Each bar will display a sign with the winery's name and "Patron's Choice Winner" title.

For wineries looking to become involved in this event, please see our brochure, which includes all details and contact info for becoming a participant.
