Noon - 5 p.m.

A culinary and wine extravaganza featuring a dazzling array of tasty delights prepared by the chefs of downtown Newark's very own restaurants complemented by fine wines from around the world. Fourteen of downtown's restaurants have selected wines to feature and created a menu to showcase their culinary abilities.

Attendees will enjoy the spring air as they stroll the downtown Newark wine trail! Stroll, taste, shop and dine with friends with lots of wineries, restaurants and unique shops at your fingertips.

The first 2,000 attendees will receive a complimentary commemorative wine tasting glass and wine pouch.  No tickets required! You pick up a glass at the Academy Lawn and pay as you go. Attendees must be at least 21 years of age with proper I.D. to participate in wine tastings.
