Uncork Illinois Wine Festival

Saturday June 15th is the annual Uncork Illinois Wine Festival here in Oak Park!

Join us for Wine, Jazz music, and stitching fun!

Our doors will be open for all to enjoy the fresh air and live music. Tables and chairs will be right outside on Westgate St to bask in the summer sun. Our Father's Day sale will run through Monday so you can take 20% off your purchases, and there's plenty of shopping and restaurant options nearby. Grab a friend and make a day of it!

Saturday June 15, from 1 to 9 p.m.

Wine aficionados will have a unique opportunity to sample over 150 wines from more than 15 local wineries at Downtown Oak Park’s seventh annual Uncork Illinois event.
