Join us for the first Wine Walk of the season by taking a Walk on the Wild Side!

Thursday, April 21, from 5 to 8, we'll be watching two artists-in-action, enjoying tasty wine and treats, and frolicking through O'Bryonville with many four-legged friends- all to benefit UCAN - United Coalition for Animals! 

~ Continuing the O'Bryonville Wine Walk tradition, every third Thursday will not only bring fun and friends together, but each month recognizes a charitable organization and every purchase you make during the event helps raise money for this special cause.

So enjoy the party, the buying,& the giving!

While sipping a tasty beverage during the wine walk, enjoy the actual cup, too. Created specifically for indigenous, these delightful containers will not only hold your drink, but is a great way to celebrate the thrilling Third Thursday Wine Walks.  Meet the artist from 6 to 8.  Take home a cup for just $11 ~ collect them all!


Ken Swinson~maysville,ky


Grab your wild friends and meet wildly wonderful printmaker, Ken Swinson. Enjoy watching him create a special image in his signature style of our four-legged friends just for this Third Thursday Wine Walk. Don't miss the opportunity to see this dog-gone purrfect artist-in-action and purchase a print that he'll make and sign just for you!
