The wine glasses can be taken out of the restaurant to shop in local stores as part of the Freeport Festival District.  

“We are excited to bring Pretzel City Winefest back to Downtown Freeport. It is one of our favorite events to encourage shopping in our fabulous stores and enjoy a fun day with friends. There is an extra layer of anticipation this year as we emerge from a long winter and health restrictions to enjoy an event that sparks enthusiasm and positive energy,” said Partnership Event Coordinator Katie Gentz.

May 22 will also be the second Freeport Festival District date for the year.
