The Downtown Issaquah Wine and Art Walk is a community event held on the first Saturdays, March through June. Downtown galleries, merchants and sidewalks come alive 6 p.m.-9 p.m. in downtown Issaquah.

The walk is a night of wine tasting, art and music. Stroll along Front Street and browse local art while tasting Washington wines poured at various businesses and galleries. Front Street shops and restaurants are open to the general public during Wine and Art Walk and all ages are welcome. The event is free, but wine tasting requires ticket purchase.

Organizers ask participants to bring their own glasses to help reduce waste.

March wineries include: Tsillan Cellars, Zerba Cellars, Patterson Cellars, Drum Roll Winery, Scout & Cellars, Love that Red, Naches Heights Vineyard, Ancestry, Basel Cellars and Isenhower Cellars.

It is a “rain or shine” event.

Ticket ($25 advance or $35 the day of the event for 10 drink tokens) are available online at
