Uncork Illinois Wine Tasting

Wine aficionados will have a unique opportunity to sample over 100 wines from more than 10 local wineries and taste locally-produced artisan foods at Downtown Oak Park's first wine festival, Uncork Illinois on Saturday, June 2nd from 1-9pm.

Admission is $15 at the gate and includes a free souvenir glass and 7 tastings (while supplies last). Additional tasting tickets may be purchased for $1.00. In addition to tastings, vineyards will sell wines by the glass or bottle, and offer pairing tips with favorite dishes from local restaurants.

All proceeds will benefit Wonder Works Children’s Museum, an Oak Park children’s museum that unleashes creativity and imagination in children through art, performance, building and more. Advanced tickets may be purchased at, as space is limited at the event.
