“The Ballard Wine Walk not only creates an opportunity to explore the flavors of select Washington wines while visiting some of Ballard’s best boutique shops, it also serves as a fundraiser for the Ballard Alliance – a non-profit neighborhood organization that implements programs throughout the year to support our local businesses and residents,” Ballard Alliance Executive Director Mike Stewart said in a statement.

It costs $35 for 10 tasting tickets, and an additional three tasting tickets are available for $10. The commemorative glass is $5.

Every wine walk since it started in 2019 has sold out; you can buy tickets online.
