COOKEVILLE – The Bryan Symphony Orchestra in partnership with the WestSide Business Association will double tasting selections at the fourth annual Wine on the WestSide Festival, scheduled for 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16.
This year’s event is the first to feature international wines and craft beers. The 2014 festival will present nearly 100 international wines and 50 craft beers, doubling the tasting menu of last year’s festival.
“We’re pulling out the stops,” said Allan Stingley, event co-organizer and WestSide Business Association president. “Our goal this year is to bring in 1,500 visitors.”
To help accommodate that goal, two additional blocks on Cedar Avenue will double the event’s square footage. “Our 22 booths, plus more room for pedestrian flow, and more local restaurants to serve attendees all should help us provide the best event yet,” Stingley said.
Wine on the WestSide is the largest annual fundraising event for both founding organizations. Funds raised help the Bryan Symphony Orchestra hold a free annual concert in Cookeville’s Dogwood Park, and allow the WestSide Business Association to maintain historic WestSide sites and sponsor community projects.
Tickets are $35 online and $45 at the door. More information is available online at www.wineonthewestside.com or by phone at (931)-525-2633.
