The Plano Wine Walk at Willow Bend is postponed until further notice, but don’t be sad!

Tickets available for Sept., Oct., Nov. and Dec. 2020 at the link below.

Purchase Tickets >


How It Works:

Attendees will purchase a ticket to receive their collectible glass at check-in, and taste at least 15 different wines at participating locations throughout The Shops at Willow Bend. All featured wines come from small, boutique wineries.

The Plano Wine Walk at Willow Bend also features pop-up vendors, live music and special shopping discounts for attendees. At the end of the event, attendees will be entered into a raffle drawing for prizes.

Plus, we’ve got a scavenger hunt! Participants look for hidden items in the wine tasting locations for the chance to win one of our fancy disco ball wine glasses.

Check-In Info:

Check-in will be located next to Ascension Coffee inside the new main entrance to The Shops at Willow Bend (where the new restaurants are located). This area is officially called The District. The closest parking is the valet at The District or the parking garage at Neiman Marcus. More FAQs are answered at the bottom of this page.

Enjoy our event responsibly. Guests are responsible for making plans for a sober ride home after this event.

What time should I arrive?
The Wine Walk check-in opens at 5:30pm and closes at 8pm.

    In the new 2017 Dates and Themes section, is September 13 correct? September 13 is a Wednesday and I thought the Art & Wine Walk was always the second Thursday of each month.

    Can’t wait for the Art & Wine Walk season to begin!

      1. says: April Laza

        I have volunteered & attended the Art walk before. Price is listed as $12.00 if purchased in advance. I’m only finding $14.65 ( it used to be $13.00 & something before). Can I buy the $12.00 ticket anywhere tomorrow downtown?

        $12.00 $1.53 $1.12?. Last year is was 10.00 in advance.

          Hi April,
          You are correct: last year’s presale ticket price was $10 and this year it is $12. The price at the event goes up to $18 so the cheapest ticket is always online through Prekindle. Prekindle automatically adds processing fees of a few dollars that we cannot change.

    1. says: luke shertzer

      Yes, anyone under 18 can attend, and they do not need a ticket. They can still walk around and shop and enjoy the art and live music.

  2. says: Amy

    If I can’t be there to check in at 5, is that okay? Is there a “cut off” time that I have to get there for check in?

    1. says: luke shertzer

      Amy, Check-in does not shut down until 8:30pm, which is 30 minutes before the event ends. You can check in anytime until 8:30pm.
