2016 Oil Festival Schedule and Wine Walk

How Wine Walk Works

Guests purchase tickets for $20 from the Chamber, either in person, by phone or online. They can choose to pick up their tickets in advance or from a "will call" window the night of the event. Anyone needing to pick up tickets or buy tickets the night of the event will come into the Chamber Office.

Once  guests have a ticket, they get in line for registration under a tent on Central Avenue.

Guests will:
1) be ID'd.
2) have their hands stamped
3) get a lanyard with a Wine Check number
4) get their program
5) get their souvenir tasting glass
6) have the option to buy a 4-bottle wine carrier box

From there guests are allowed to visit winery locations in any order they choose.

The food tent will open at 5:45 to avoid a bottleneck of guests coming through as soon as they complete registration.

Guests go from location to locations, getting in line to sample wine. They may choose to purchase wine from any location. They can either carry their purchased bottles or have bottles checked. No open alcohol is permitted in the city. Open alcohol can be confiscated.

Each winery will have paper wine bags with sticker labels. Each purchased bottle of wine to be checked will have the corresponding number from the buyer's lanyard written on the sticker label.

Checked wines are picked up by Chamber volunteers and brought back to the Wine Check at Henderson Electric (two doors down from the Chamber). When a guest is ready to claim checked wine, he or she will present their numbered lanyard. All wine in the Wine Check with that number will be given to that guest.

Wine will not be handed out without the numbered lanyard. Names or Wine Walk ticket numbers cannot be used to pick up wine. No record will be kept of which lanyard number goes with which Wine Walk guests.

Additional four-wine bottle carriers can be purchased at the Wine Check.

Guests may retrieve checked wine at any time during the evening, but there may be a short wait while purchased wine is in transit.

Wine Check will close at 10:30 p.m.

Guests are responsible for keeping track of their own lanyard number, souvenir glass, and any unchecked wine or other purchases.

Wineries and winery locations and the food tent reserve the right to remove or refuse to serve any guests who behave inappropriately or violate the city's open container law.

Not all winery locations are accessible to people with disabilities.

Must be 21 or older to participate.

The annual Wine Walk is a fundraiser for the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce. Funds are raised through ticket sales and sponsorships, but not based on wine sales.
