SPRING WINE + ART WALK
UPDATE | March 23, 2020
We have decided to postpone the Spring Wine + Art Walk indefinitely. We are hoping to reschedule for sometime in June/July depending on the latest updates regarding COVID-19.
Check out incredible ART by local artists, SIP some wine (and sometimes craft beer!), MEET new friends along the way, and of course SHOP at the participating retailers in Downtown Abbotsford.
Designated drivers are encouraged!

DETAILS | Check in time for the day of the event is between 4pm-5:30pm (at the latest!) at the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association office (2633C Montrose Ave, down Matt Peters Lane). Here is where you will check in, get your wrist band, grab your glass, pick up your artist guide and map.

“If I don’t want to have drinks and want to only look at the art on display, can I still participate?”
Yes! You do not need a ticket to visit the participating businesses and view the art on display.
“I saw someone post on the Facebook event that they were selling their ticket because they are now unable to make the event. How can I verify that they in fact have tickets to sell to me?”
If you see someone selling their ticket through a post on the event page or if they send you a message, first have a look at their profile. If it shows that they live in a far-away country (ie Australia) then it unlikely that they in fact have purchased tickets to this event. If they say that they won’t meet in person and only accept gifts cards, THIS IS A RED FLAG. The only way to verify if a person is legitimately selling their ticket is to check with us at the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending us a Direct Message through Facebook. We have a list of every person who has purchased a ticket so we can see who actually has legitimate tickets to sell.
We will also be approving all messages onto the event page so we hope to curb any false posts.
“I signed up for the email newsletter but I never received my email with the pre-sale link.”
Make sure to check your email settings and your junk mail folder. We found that a few people had our email with the link end up in their junk mail folder.
“I don’t like purchasing tickets online. Can I purchase in person instead?”
Yes! You may purchase tickets in person on August 14th, 2019 from 10:30am on at the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association office (2633C Montrose Ave, down Matt Peters Lane).
“How much wine do you get at each stop?”
At each stop, you are served two ounces. Some businesses also provide snacks.
