Arizona Wine Tasting
The Verde Valley Wine Consortium will host their Wine Tasting Garden right on Main Street, showcasing some of Arizona's premier wine, many of which are from right here in the Verde Valley. Tasting tickets with complimentary wine glasses are available with proceeds supporting the local wine industry. This year's participating wineries and vineyards include: Arizona Stronghold Vineyards, Burning Tree Cellars, Caduceus Cellars, Merkin Vineyards, Page Spring Cellars, Four Eight Wine Works, Winery 101, Fire Mountain Wines, and Pillsbury Wines. The Verde Valley Wine Consortium is a key partner of the Walkin' On Main event, working to bring attention to Northern Arizona's burgeoning wine industry and encouraging tourism, economic development, and education to all.
Antique Car Show
Another highlight of the day includes the antique and classic car show on display on the north side of Historic 89A. Organized and hosted by the Mingus Union Hot Rod Club, this colorful line up of hot rods and collectible cars is one more reason to meander Main Street during the main event.
