Pretzel City Winefest brings hundreds to Downtown Freeport

Wine enthusiasts from around the region flocked to Downtown Freeport on Saturday to enjoy great shopping, food and, of course, wine at the third annual Pretzel City Winefest.

Wineries from around the region were showcased at participating storefronts in Downtown Freeport where participants could walk around and try their favorite varieties. The event also offered entertainment at several locations and a trolley to help ferry people around the area.

Pretzel City Winefest is hosted by the Greater Freeport Partnership to attract visitors to downtown businesses and show them the wonderful shops and restaurants Freeport has to offer.

“We are very happy with the turnout of wine lovers for this event! We had visitors from the Rockford and Madison areas as well as people visiting with family and friends from out of town. Thank you to all of our sponsors, business owners, volunteers and anyone who came out to enjoy the beautiful day!” said Brand Director Nicole Haas.

Stay tuned for our 2020 event date!
