Wine & Finds event sees changes

Attendees of what was previously known as the Wine and Arts Festival will see a re-invented annual event this Saturday, with a new name.

The event, now called Wine and Finds, will still feature wine-tasting opportunities on the Centerville courthouse lawn. But this year there will be craft beer available, as well as numerous vendors on the square.

There is no charge to get in, and there won't be fencing this year. There will be a charge to taste wine or craft beer. While the fence is gone, drinks must be enjoyed on the courtyard lawn.

Big Grove Brewery is coming in to offer their selection of craft beers.

This year's Pancake Day queen contestants and their escorts will have a pie eating contest as a fundraiser at 6 p.m.

Vendors will be on the square from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday, but the wine and craft beer tasting portion is scheduled from 3-8 p.m.

Live music from the Harvest Band will be from 4-8 p.m. Grape stomping demonstrations will be at 6:30 p.m.

The event is separate, but with the "Finds" portion of the event ties in with the Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt, which runs from June 7-9. A map of participating vendors in the regional junk jaunt event can be viewed at https://thejunkparlor.com/southern-iowa-junk-jaunt-spring-2019/.
