Wine & Craft Beer Tasting

The Fine Arts Council fine art shows have been an Iowa tradition for over forty years, showcasing Midwest artists since 1970. Our markets house over 125 local artists and anywhere from 4,000-6,000 patrons a day! Our annual tasting occurs during peak patron visiting hours (12pm-3pm) and consists of locally owned Midwest Wineries and Breweries from Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Des Moines, Davenport, Minneapolis, and many more. All patrons 21 years of age and older are invited to participate in the free Annual Wine & Craft Beer Tasting. Area vendors will showcase a selection of their wines and craft brews for patrons to sample, enjoy, and purchase. The featured vendors vary year after year, allowing guests to experience the wineries and breweries from all over the midwest and support some of the area’s most well-kept secrets.

If your company is interested in participating in the tasting, please contact our Logistics Director, Zahra Aalabdulrasul, for more information.
