Wined-Up tasting, big band concert FridayFrom Staff Reports
Main Street Newnan reminds that the fourth annual wine event “Summer Wined-Up” — previously known as “Wine About the Economy” — is Friday.
The event runs from 5-9 pm. Twenty-one merchants have signed up to participate, each featuring a different wine.
The tickets may be purchased via the Main Street website. Tickets purchased on the website can be picked up at the registration table on the day of the event. You can also purchase advance tickets at the Main Street Office on First Avenue, Grannie Fannie’s Antiques, Piedmont Wellness Center, Fine Lines Art & Framing, R. DuBose Jewelers, Design House, Let Them Eat Toffee, and Bank of Coweta.
Everyone will check in at the registration table in front of Cook’s Office Equipment on East Court Square to receive their brochure, commemorative wine glass, and event bracelet. The brochures will have a map of participating locations as well as information about the wines.
Event-goers will need to bring a photo ID and be 21 or older to receive their event bracelet. Everyone must wear their event bracelet at all times.
In conjunction with the evening’s festivities, the City of Newnan Cultural Arts Commission has announced a summer concert to be held Friday at the Wadsworth Auditorium. A Summer of Swing will feature Night Train, a 17-piece band who will perform an evening of big band, jazz, and swing hits from the 1940s through today from artists such as Maynard Ferguson, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Ted Heath, Harry James, and Billy May.
According to bandleader Perry Peek, Night Train is “a big band that swings in the style of an era when bandleaders were the kings of swing.”
A Summer of Swing will begin at 7:30 p.m., and tickets for the concert only are $15 per person.
A special combo ticket is available for the concert and wine tasting. For $30 per person you get a ticket for the wine tasting event and the Summer of Swing big band concert – a savings of $15 over the individual price of both regular tickets.
Concert tickets are available at: Scott’s Books, Let Them Eat Toffee, Morgan’s Jewelers at Ashley Park, and Bank of Coweta – Thomas Crossroads branch.
Ticket sales are cash or check only – no credit cards, please, request city representatives.
