Art, Beer, and Wine Festival
June 8 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The event is an important fund-raiser for the museum and part of the museum’s overall funding mix, which also includes membership dues, contributions, and facility rental fees. This year, Art, Beer, and Wine grossed more than $200,000 which will be used for museum operations, including programming and staffing. This is truly a community festival, as more than 300 volunteers devoted the day to helping the museum’s staff manage the event.
The festival has also become an important community event that makes Jackson a destination. “We are pleased and proud to host this landmark festival and to share Jackson with visitors from near and far,” explained Diane Gutenkauf, Executive Director of Ella Sharp Museum. “People look forward to it all year, and visitors tell us that they even factor it into their vacation planning and family reunions!” In addition to local residents, the festival draws visitors from across the country and Canada. This year, guests came from as far away as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, and Texas.
